021 | Recurring Questions: External Grasping


We’ve got Google, apps, social media, books, articles, doctors, practitioners, workshops, health retreats, yoga, and the rest – there is no shortage of information or help out there that we engage with every day. It’s evident that we are seeking for something more.

Grasping though has a different feel to it; it comes from a place of fear. Two things happen when we grasp:

  1. We clutch at something outside of us
  2. We abandon ourselves

If you’re looking for a sense of safety and freedom and calm, there’s another way.
