So we are always, are we not, searching for some kind of dependence, security. Is it possible for the mind ever to free itself from this sense of dependence?
We have never questioned the whole issue at all, why each one of us seeks some kind of dependence.
Is it not that we really, deep down, demand security, permanency?
If we depend on another for our security, for our inward well-being, there arise out of that dependence innumerable problems, and then we try to solve those problems;the problems of attachment. But we never question, we never go into the problem of dependence.
