Attachment breeds suffering. When you approach life from a state of attachment or expectation you will always experience disappointment, pain and suffering. Attachment creates contraction and contraction limits your ability to connect with the Source. When you’re not connected to the Source of your Being you feel anxious, fearful, depressed and overwhelmed. The more you try to manipulate, control and possess your life the more obstacles you encounter. Freedom lies in nonresistance. When you relate to life without attachment and without expectation you respond to life in a truly creative and genuine way. You are more efficient, and your actions becomes an effortless expression of your innate nature.
You become attached by virtue of desire. Desire breeds attachment. By dissolving your desires you will eliminate your attachments. This will ultimately lead to true freedom. Fulfillment of worldly desire is merely a temporary joy only serving to deepen your insatiability. When you’re no longer attached you spontaneously experience the essence of life, its Truth and intrinsic beauty. Nothing can be really known or truly loved without non-attachment. Do not mistake non-attachment with being detached. It is an altogether different condition. Detachment is a life limiting and self defensive response that results from not wanting to engage, or connect. It disables your perceptual and associative abilities. Whereas, non-attachment actually serves to expand your awareness and deepen your relationship to life.
