Maybe this is what you are trying to explain ? You discovered something wonderful. you want to wrap it up tightly in a box so you can always have it whenever you want/need.
Something about life doesn't allow that.
I suggest looking for a better alternative.
"art to developing detachment"
ive been rolling around with this for 'daze'... initially thinking "developing detachment" was the saddest statement I ever heard in my life.
"Therein lie the seeds of dependency (and despondency)."
now i need an axe to hack down what i thought was a beautifull tree grown from the pernicious 'seeds'... I thought the tree would provide shade and shelter for myself and those i "loved"...
now im looking out at the despondency desert
OK... a bit dramatic but not to far off.
