Attachment (ə tætʃ mənt) – strong feelings of affection or loyalty for someone or something
It’s a funny thing, to want something so much, that it completely alters your existence. This object, thing, person, idea… Toxic to your waking thoughts, instilling a sense of incompleteness inside of you.
A common theme throughout my yoga practice has been ‘Aparigraha’ one of the 5 Yamas, its meaning – Non Attachment.
Attachment can be anything from a habit, something so ingrained in your being it has become utterly routine, a ‘Samskara’, or it can be the energy pull we experience when we want someone or something we cannot have.
Synchronicity, an ideology founded by Carl Jung comes to mind. Every action has a cause and an effect, and because of a previous one, something may or may not take place because of it. I believe this to be entirely true.
We as humans were meant to live instinctually, not dwelling on every thought and consciously micromanaging our lives. Spontaneity is derived from living instinctively, and living instinctively allows a primary focus on the present.
Challenge yourself to let go, what’s needed will come and what isn’t will diminish. The act of letting go will allow synchronicity to take affect and propel you into a positive energy.
“Do not dwell on the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.” – Buddha
