On Wishful Thinking
It isn’t the loved ones and gain, per se, that need to be renounced; it’s the unrealistic hopes we place in these things. Wishful thinking can easily become more compelling than the longing of the bodhi heart.
– Pema Chodron, “Cutting Ties: The Fruits of Solitude “
May you be free from suffering and the causes of suffering!
