This site has been created to expand and share on some of the insights that led to the writing of It's Monday Only in Your Mind: You Are Not Your Thoughts.

Attached Relations

The attached relation reaching for God is no different than the attached relation reaching for Heroin. Although this reaching will produce different results, the attached relation is the same…

Attached relations to what’s occurring determines the energy you will live by. This is because the attached relations are tied into your emotions, which is what gives them life. It’s never truly about what’s occurring, it’s always the attached relation to it that determines what one will do next. Using the example of food shows how prevalent this is. Food is needed to live, but how about dessert? See how the attached relation to dessert makes the emotion of delight arise. Nothing inherently has any substance to it. If we didn’t have tastebuds our eating habits would be very different and this would be because the attached relation to pleasure wouldn’t arise and manifest in the need to be satisfied. Without tastebuds we would eat when we were hungry, not to say that we don’t now, but I know in my case food and especially dessert is mostly used for the fulfillment of pleasure. I don’t eat food that I don’t like and I definitely only eat dessert for pleasure. The attached relation we have to things determines how strong the grip is.

Look at some of the most glaring labeled addictions in our society and see why many don’t break free from their hold. The attached relation to anything being used as a coping mechanism runs deep. But what’s not understood are the less glaring ones have the same attached relations as the one’s that wreck havoc and even kill. One uses programs to break free from the attached relation to something, only to substitute it for another attached relation in the form of a program. And although the outer results are different, the same bondage to an attached relation remains in place. An attached relation to God is no different than a attached relation to Heroin. Again different outer results, but the same inner bondage exist. Until this is understood the attached relation to whatever thing the Conditioned Mind uses will keep you in bondage to whatever is being used…
