Letting Go of Attachment
Part of The Power of Contentment Series
We often find ourselves in positions that we do not like and cannot change. This leaves us with unpleasant and uncomfortable feelings. We can feel trapped in these negative mindsets. We may not be able to change our external situation, but we can change our restless, discontented minds. When our mind is free from distraction and craving we can experience its natural stillness, allowing us to find peace and contentment in every moment of our life, regardless of the external situation.
In this class, we will focus on how to let go of some of the causes of our unpeaceful minds and uncomfortable feelings. While we remain attached to resources and respect, pleasure, a good reputation, and praise, our mind is unbalanced. We are also inclined to become overexcited when we possess them and dejected when we lose them. We remain unstable, vulnerable, and emotionally dependent upon these things. If we can develop equanimity with regard to the concerns of this life we shall overcome many of our daily anxieties and frustrations.
