MIND : ITS MYSTERIES AND CONTROL : 23.6.1


 


Chapter 23 : Pleasure And Pain : 6.1
6. Attachment And Pleasure-1

The mind is the cause of attachment to delusive objects.
It is the mind which is the germ of all Karmas.
It daily agitates this body of ours to work and secure for its enjoyment various pleasurable objects.

The mind always wants to be doing something and, when it attaches itself with the objects it cherishes, feels amused and happy.
A play at cards has nothing in it; but, the attachment and attention produce pleasure.

There can be attraction without attachment.
You can be attracted by a beautiful cabbage rose or a young lady.
But it is not necessary that you must be attached either to the rose or to the lady.
 Attachment comes after possession and enjoyment.
Swami Sivananda
