Attachment in Non-Attachment

”Hold on tightly. Let go lightly.”

Love the world. Hold it closely. Hug fiercely with all your might (love), and like a good hug, let go lightly, gently, letting the world go.

In each breath, this is our life. Enlightenment is not something to achieve. It is everyday practice. It is not a juncture to reach. It is a sincerity, an understanding and compassion – each day. Enlightenment is not enrapture and ecstasy on the mountaintop. It is our everyday mind. It is the ordinary way.
