Siddharth Gautam Buddha resisted attachment because everything will change. Things that can make you happy can also cause deep suffering.

Money can wane
People can leave
Your physique can slack

Why get attached to anything at all? Can resistance to attachment lead to some sort of everlasting bliss that we all deeply crave, but can’t figure out how to get it, nor what it even is?

Why does anything exist at all if it is to be resisted? Can the big man upstairs (or woman, or men or women or it) be playing a game out of us?

Well that’s pretty mean of he/she/it of them. How could the universe be created out of negativity when there exists vital feelings of togetherness and caring love… aren’t they all forms of attachment?



Slipping away from my life

Slipping away from my life,
Is all things that I want
Getting farther and farther
Making me clench tighter
To what remnants there remain
Which look changed and never the same
Putting me into deep despair
That there’s nothing to hold, but there’s everything there
