This Will Not Satisfy

When the mind has seen through — and let go of — the illusion that lasting satisfaction can be found in things that are constantly changing, the result is Dispassion (virago) toward “worldly” phenomena.

This is not Depression. Or Indifference. It’s not: “who cares, it’s all impermanent anyway”….which is just another form of hatred and aversion. It’s more the feeling that things are inherently Un-enticing, Un-captivating, Un-satisfying in the long run. And therefore: Able To Be Let Go Of.

Which might not sound all that great. But this is what leads to profound freedom and ease.

More on that tomorrow.
