Stress and anxiety are the children of attachment, they are both a form of craving that take us away from the present and into areas of imagination that steal away our peace.
When our craving for something is strong we attach ourselves to a particular outcome where we get what we crave for, this causes us to feel misery when our craving is not fulfilled. When a fear of something happening in the future takes over our mind and we attach ourselves to the hope of it not happening we also feel misery.
The mainstream western world is deluded into accepting a fabricated version of reality where things are fast and easy yet the actual truth is that the accomplishment of all great things in life take work, especially when it comes to changing and healing ourselves. No one said it was going to be easy, if it was easy it would have been done already, but it will be absolutely worth it and the reward will be greater than the difficulty it took to get there.
Letting go takes training and dedication. Find a practice that brings you noticeable results and use it consistently. When things get tough remember that we are not building something small, we are building a palace of peace within our own hearts and it takes determination and effort to complete something of such beauty and magnitude.
Sending love to all beings. May we all cultivate our freedom 🙏💙 #yungpueblo
