How do you unhook from the pulls and pressures of your world? It would be nice if you could just shut your door, or go into the garden, and the harpies in your mind—all the niggling things to do and deal with—just went away. Or, if you could just finally get it all done, so there was nothing left to contend with. Neither is likely to happen.
Your freedom will not come from trying to ignore all the “stuff” or by trying to complete everything—it requires truly detaching from it. But how do you do that? By getting it all out of your head, and reflecting on it all, appropriately.
