“Most of our troubles are due to our passionate desire for and attachment to things that we misapprehend as enduring entities.” Dalai Lama
When you’ve got plenty of OCD to contend with; letting go doesn’t come easy. I’ve hired a Dutchman to take care of my garden until my physical situation improves. And his approach to gardening is particularly European. It’s more relaxed, more in sync with plants and their habits and is concentrated on the whole, not the minutiae. This is a kind of therapy for me. And therapy is work. My greatest challenge will be changing the way I experience the garden: bystander, critic and student of Zen.
