Brighten by your example

Sharing your light with others
Sing your song so others can hear the beauty of your voice
Write your book so we can wonder at the lovely story
Dance your steps for others to enjoy

Make art for others to cherish
Create your ideas for others to behold
Be you and shine among us
Share your kindness for life around

We all have a bright light inside
Collectively we can shine
Together the world can be one
The light always takes away the dark

Share your bright light
Don’t fear what others will say
We have only one time to shine
Don’t miss your chance to brighten by your example

People, things and action

Often we do things in life and we do it only out of an attachment to doing that thing.

We rarely stop to consider what is the purpose of doing it.

Strangely, the same pattern occurs with objects and stuff. We accumulate stuff without really knowing why and we become attached to it and keep it, often without knowing why too.

We have an obsession with becoming attached to people, actions, things and so on.

These mental attachments are there to people, things, actions, places without us being conscious of them. However, the mind controls us with these obsessions and brings suffering to us both mental and physical. In a conscious state we see these things for the mind patterns that they are an then we can move on from them and become detached from the hold on us.

What if we lived without attachment and only be with people from choice but not glued to them, owning things that had a purpose but were free to get rid of them without any upset and doing stuff that actually mattered and enriched our lives, again without the mental millstone of having to do it out of attachment?

I guess we’d be happier, we’d have a lot more time, a whole lot less stuff, surrounded by people who loved us for what we truly are and we’d be free from the constraints of having to mentally hold onto everyone, everything and every action. We would be free from emotional drains, free from our thoughts, free to be ourselves.

Become unattached.
