“THE HAPPINESS OF NON-ATTACHMENT: . …… . Excerpt From: Catherine, Shaila. “Focused and Fearless.”

By Todd Quackenbush
What is true happiness?

To begin to explore this, notice the mind that grasps at perceptions, and notice when there is no grasping in the mind.

When you feel the mind without grasping, even for a moment, let yourself fully experience that quality of ease, from head to toe.

There is happiness in the expression of non-attachment.

Can you find it?

Rest into that state of ease beyond attraction and repulsion.

Try it in fairly neutral encounters, with physical pleasure, or in the face of pain.

The joy of

pure detachment

is discovered

whenever you are

not struggling

against the

fact of things.”

One response to this post.
