6 Quotes to Inspire Non-Attachment in Your Life

To practice non-attachment means you put your trust in the timing of your life. Our vision for our lives goes one way and the actual outcome goes another – sometimes meeting up in the same place, but taking a different route than we anticipated or planned for. When we practice non-attachment, we are at peace with this process.

Our cause for suffering is oftentimes created by our attachment to the thoughts, ideas, and moments outside of our control.

Here are 6 quotes by Thich Nhat Hanh to inspire your practice of non-attachment and allow to free yourself from thought processes that are holding you back.

  1. “For things to reveal themselves to us, we need to be ready to abandon our views about them.”
  2. “Letting go gives us freedom, and freedom is the only condition for happiness. If, in our heart, we still cling to anything – anger, anxiety, or possessions – we cannot be free.”
  3. “People have a hard time letting go of their suffering out of a fear of the unknown, they prefer suffering that is familiar.”
  4. “Let go of the past. Let go of the future. Let go of the present. Proceed to the opposite shore with a free mind, leaving behind all conditioned things.”
  5. “It is not impermanence that makes us suffer. What makes us suffer is wanting things to be permanent when they are not.”
  6. “The seed of suffering in you may be strong, but don’t wait until you have no more suffering before allowing yourself to be happy.”
