Doesn't such a state occur when you allow yourself to depend upon something that is utterly undependable?
This is why conservatism so embraces the idea of consequentialism. You can depend only upon yourself and your own considered actions.
I don't see how you can identify a 'self' to 'depend' on.
If you have something to protect then you are vulnerable, and you have too much.
If you have to depend on something then how things unfold is insufficient,
you have to enforce your personal standards onto objective circumstances.
Your body, your brain, your money, your wits, these things are all fleeting,
susceptible to deterioration. But if there is only you
then the only thing to be vulnerable to is yourself.
One really is quite vulnerable if they allow themselves to always let go.
Humility to one's own self, power over everything else, wisdom to live harmoniously.
