“The nature of the mind is to interpret non-essentials essential.  The mind creates artificial needs, believing it cannot live without them.  In this way we carry a great burden of attachments throughout our life.  Attachment is itself a great burden on our minds.  We may never understand the extent of the burden till we’re free of it.  But if we find joy within, we can live a simple life, free of endless complications.”
