Attachment to things means suffering. Beings are so tied up they can’t move so end up being part of those things they make. The ego always finds reasons to hang onto someone or something. Things are tough and sharp in this world and hurt the purity of one's soul endlessly -- all because of desire and passion. The savior-boat is always there. Can you see it? At the least, can you sense it is there? Yes. But you are afraid to become separated from your things, and so you quickly get rid of the thought of it. Are you going to keep hanging on in the midst of all these things? Remain all tied up?
