Just consider…Suppose we came to possess a very expensive object. The minute that thing comes into our possession our mind changes…’Now, where can I keep it? If I leave it there somebody might steal it’…We worry ourselves into a state, trying to find a place to keep it. And when did the mind change? It changed the minute we obtained that object — suffering arose right then. No matter where we leave that object we can’t relax, so we’re left with trouble. Whether sitting, walking, or lying down, we are lost in worry.
