Hello, how can I incorporate achieving things in the world- e.g. money, sporting, as well as enjoying these things fully without attachment while practicing Buddhism?
Somewhere in all the variety of answers ... Something will resonate and be suitable. In time, with practice, money and other sport - attachments - may lessen their hold on your being ... 🏆🧘🏻♂️🥇
In other words you will change. It is inevitable. Sorry about that, it is a Buddhist thing ... 💗
Being a spiritual teenager and Un-Taoist, we may still hanker after progress ...

Love tells me I am everything.
Between the two my life flows.

I find magical thinking useful for manipulating mental states
