05 Aug Lessons in Non-attachment
You see, one of my bags still hasn’t made it to Maine. In fact, it still hasn’t been scanned in at Charlotte. My red bag decided to go rogue & have an adventure of its own. And of course everything in there is replaceable, but now I don’t have all the Three Minute Eggs I need for 16 people; I don’t have my face cleaner or my supplements; I don’t have my homemade almond butter or my DandyBlend tea.
But I do have an opportunity: to notice how I am reacting to this situation, to notice my attachment to my stuff and to having the things I think I need around me to feel comfortable. Some moments I’m ok. Some moments I’m caught up in raga (attachment).
What are you attached to today? It could be a person, a thing, a point of view. Can you let go of it or lessen your attachment? Start practicing now for when your “bag” goes AWOL.
