Stages of Attachment

Everything passes in life and that’s a fact, but attachments trait is to make everything permanent. Only when the mind is settled will one see attachment for what it is and only then will your attachments fall away…

Holding on to your view even in the face of evidence to the contrary is the most binding attachment of them all. Basically attachment occurs in stages, believing what is seen, the mental reactions to what is seen, and holding on to what is seen even though it’s proven not to be as it’s seen. The first two are the ones that occur the most. Most people learn from these to a large degree, but the last one is where attachments become deeply embedded in the subconscious. They grab hold of you and make you do all kinds of nonsense. There are many ways for attachment to manifest, just look at all the things that are reached for. Attachment is the thing that will bring satisfaction, but as soon as it’s held onto it’s gone so the next thing is needed. This is attachment at its most diabolical.

To me this is how attachmentu operates, you think someone is following you, that’s the beginning; it starts with a thought. Now the mind takes over and the mental reaction occurs or as I like to say “let the nonsense begins”. If the person thought to be following you passes you, the attachment will simply fall way, but if you’re in the grip of it, you will think the person passing you is just part of the plan; attachment will always have to run its course before subsiding. No matter what it is in life, it will pass away, that’s a fact, but attachments trait is to make everything permanent so it can remain in place. Only when the mind is at ease will attachment be seen for what it is and only then will your attachments fall away…
