Some would argue that in order to develop as a person, in any capacity, one needs to be able to concentrate.
Absolute concentration comes from mindfulness, which comes from being able to let go and clear your mind completely.
Pure concentration is the root of all important abilities. You can't gain any extraordinary ability without sheer force of concentration. You just can't.
And yet, how do you let go of everything?
Everything is a balance.
Yet some of the most accomplished people in the world have been control freaks.
You can't be mindful if you're a control freak. You can't develop as a person if you're a control freak because your mind just races and races without ceasing.
How can a person be truly, truly free?
Is it detachment? At what point is "too much" detachment a thing?
