“You might be tempted to avoid the messiness of daily living for the tranquility of stillness and peacefulness. This of course would be an attachment to stillness, and like any strong attachment, it leads to delusion. It arrests development and short-circuits the cultivation of wisdom.”

    Proving anything can become an addiction..we all have our escapes and they can all become unhealthy.
    Very profound.
