“The more you defend your stuff through the emotion of “mine,” the more lack you’ll have, and the more you cut yourself off from the Infinite Self within. People equate security with owning things. The things you own are, for the most part, like nails you put through your foot to keep you well and truly riveted to the floor. It’s stuff. It lumbers you down. Half the stuff you own isn’t worth having because it creates a prison for you, not an open pasture for you to run across.
So, start to realize you have nothing. You are nothing. When you can get to the point where you can say, “I am nothing,” you’re free, because at that point, you’re everything. If you define yourself, then there’s all sorts of stuff that you’re not. Hold on to nothing. Use things, enjoy them, be grateful and give thanks, and when you’re finished with them, release them. Then you’re free.”
Stuart Wilde, in “Infinite Self”
