attachments. For in this there is great freedom. One day you are obsessed
with buying a new house.
Once you have gotten the house, your focus changes entirely. Then
there is an entirely new set of items on which to focus. Your tendency to
put great importance on temporary situations does cause you to miss the
greater aspects of life. Were you to focus on larger, truly meaningful
pursuits, then the daily mundane issues would seem almost laughable.
Let’s say that instead of spending all of your time focused on financial
issues you were to put your efforts into feeding the hungry. Once
caught up in the plight of those less fortunate, your problems would
seem to much less in comparison.
