Do This: ask these questions of your attachments (things you think are “you” or you can’t live without)

I have been thinking quite a bit lately about the temporary nature of everything in our lives. Then I found these questions from Echart Tolle today. Whenever you have something in your life that you think is “you” or that you just can’t give up. Ask these questions.  Don’t respond immediately with what the ego wants to say to defend itself. Just sit with the questions. Feel the for the answers rather than trying to think through them.  

–  Do you realize that you will have to let go of Xxxx at some point, perhaps quite soon?

– How much more time do you need before you are ready to let go of it?

– Will you become less if you when you let go of it ?

– Has who YOU ARE become diminished by the loss?
