Recently I have been asked about how to live without attachments. Specifically, how can we have goals and desires without attachment to getting them?
Attachment, in particular attachment to an outcome, is the origin of a great deal of suffering. Attachments often bind us to a very narrow perception of how we “think” things should be. When we become stuck in that narrow perception, we are cut from the free flow of the Universe.
When we choose to release all attachment, whether it is to a person, a place, or a thing, it allows the divine love of the Universe to flow to us with ease and grace. It allows us to co-operate with the Universe, then all that is possible is available to us. To live in the possible rather than the probable, is living in freedom and from the authentic self.
As we practice non-attachment, we come to fully know how to trust—trusting the One Spirit and ourselves.
Non-attachment doesn’t mean we don’t care, it is actually the opposite, it is about unconditional love. To love without attachment is Divine Love, and this is who we really are.
Unconditional love is a powerful and universal force that uplifts, inspires, and is strong enough to bring about great change. To live from your heart center takes courage. The power of your spirit will bring you all the courage and trust you need. This power will come through your heart center leading you to live the path of your knowing, and to know the joy and magic of life.
Have a great month!
From the heart♥
