The Saddest State of Affairs

Clinging to something that destroys us…

  • Fear that paralyses
  • Anger that poisons
  • Beliefs that shrink our souls
  • Resentment that rots
  • Arrogance that steals our ability to grow and change

So very sad. Yet the saddest part of watching ourselves or someone else whither away, clutching the thing that kills, is the realization that redemption was as easy as letting go: relaxing our hold on an illusion.

Warning: This is an everyday discipline.

When I do not take time everyday to clear out my demons, they multiply quietly and convince me to:

  • rationalize my own clinging
  • focus on the clinging problems that others have
