Hi Mary, great essay. It definitely hammers homes the finer points of how teetering Attachment (Connection) with Detachment (Vulnerability — in trust, patience, faith, etc)… its one of life’s greatest pursuits of self-growth.

Reminds me of what Satyen (from http://warriorSage.com) once wrote:

Suffering is perpetuated in relationship when….

She says….I want to be Loved
and
He says……I want to be Free

Ecstasy is liberated when…

She says…..I Am Love
and
He says ……I Am Free

aka, The Bear. Here I pass along off-the-cuff thoughts (some by others) about topics that fall under HEALTH, WEALTH, SELF. Message Me: www.barrygoss.com
