Why is it so hard to slow the mind down, shut out the noise, and trust in the stillness of the next moment?

i am not sure why I am holding on to these things that are merely distractions. It seems like letting go is a bigger mystery than habit. These past months I have let go of more than I am willing to admit, and it feels both good and bad. May we find the strength, courage and wisdom to be free of grasping.

I am bored stiff without my attachments. Today I started a master cleanse, nothing to eat but lemonade with cayenne, and already I am binging on gum. There is nothing standing between me and my next grasp, only will power and the belief in a higher self. Maybe I will make it the full ten days, or perhaps even just one. Lord knows I can try my best. I have decided to document my feelings throughout this process. Today I wrote: unmotivated, sad, hungry for sweets. Not to mention that I am at work writing this, I feel a little doldrums today. Perhaps that will change into glee and a light happy feeling. I sure hope so, but I am not betting on an easy week. I’m not even counting on an easy afternoon!
