“It is I, Quan Yin.
When you welcome something into your life with open arms, you are accessing more of yourself. When you put all of the emphasis on something outside of you, without acknowledging the fact that it is only helping you access more of who you are, that is how you create an attachment. The feeling of attachment creates a dependency, a dependency that need not exist at all.
But if you have yourself convinced that you can only access what it is you are feeling by engaging with this person, object, place, job, or situation outside of yourself, that is when you run into an unhealthy relationship. If instead you were to recognize that the feeling inside of you was always there and was simply waiting to be activated, you could create instead a very healthy relationship with yourself.
I suggest that you begin to foster this relationship by acknowledging all of the positive and pleasant feelings that you have ever had as being aspects of you that you always have access to. Once you activate a feeling, a frequency, you actually demonstrate to yourself that you have greater access to it and that it is easier to access than you think.
I understand why it is fun to have the experience of something outside of yourself stimulating the feeling within you, but all that I am suggesting is that you demonstrate to yourself how fun it can be to allow yourself to feel without anything outside of you giving you a reason to feel it.
I am Quan Yin, and I hold you in my heart.”
