Non Attachment

Through desire we give rise to attachments.
We attach not only to physical things,
but also to ideas and opinions about ourselves and others.

everything changes and disappears eventually,

and frees us from our enslaving desires and addictions to sensual and emotional pleasures, Non Attachments akin to freedom, equanimity and serenity.
