What or whom do you reach for when you feel uneasy, uncertain, adrift, anxious, afraid, groundless, lost?
How often do you feel dys-ease?
How dependent are you on what / whom you reach for?
Does what / whom you reach for actually cure - OR - just provide a bit of distraction from your dys-ease?
Isn't it peace that we lack when we feel dys-ease. But peace cannot be acquired by grabbing onto people or things. One becomes peaceful as one lets go of, becomes independent from, all the distractions we habitually reach for whenever we feel the 'anxious quiver of being.'
If you let go a little, you will have a little peace.
If you let go a lot, you will have a lot of peace.
And if you let go completely, you will have complete peace.
Letting go of - learning not to take seriously - not to depend on - distractions, is not a dogma or even a should. It's something to try for our self. If, after an honest trial period, it works for us, then it may be worth continuing.
