Pain is the reaction to attachment   

Sunday, September 17, 1978

  • Q: Can we observe the actual implications of attachment?
  • One is attached to one's experience. There is holding on to the knowledge, the memory of it, never letting go. Can you watch that and let the story involved reveal itself?
  • Can you let the thing that you are watching tell its story, rather than you tell it? Like a flower, when you watch it very closely, when you see everything in its detail, the beauty of the whole thing, can we watch attachment in the same way? Is there an observation of this happening, the actual state and the nature of it, instantly?
  • Why do we find it so difficult to remain with a fact?
