One of our most common and deeply rooted emotional problem is desirous attachment, which can manifest in many forms such as dependency, addiction, discontent and fear of change. On a day-to-day level attachment keeps us stuck in needy and painful relationships, as well as ensnaring our mind into an endless search for satisfaction where it cannot be found. On a deeper level, attachment keeps us trapped in samsara, the endless cycle of ego and suffering. Non-attachment makes our mind light, spacious and free. Paradoxically, we can truly love others and enjoy life only by developing the inner freedom of non-attachment.
