Attachment

.
.
Being attached is what prevents us from seeing,
.
.
it is what clouds this miraculous awareness.

.

Geoffrey Shugen Arnold

.
.
my two cents: We need to balance our desires, our need for approval, success and status.
.
.
The judgments we carry become attachments, a burden, a ball and chain.
.
.
Review all your judgments and let all go that you can.

Pick a path and live it not judge it

Always perform your duty efficiently and without attachment to the results,
.
.
because by doing work without attachment one attains the Supreme.

Bhagavad Gita
.
.
.
My two cents: Being in the moment, focused on the task at hand changes mundane chores into an adventure.
.
.
Life is filled with many dull moments, waiting in line, obligatory functions, daily chores and empty spaces.
.
.
These spaces contain an expansive calm, part of the real journey, the path we seek.
.
.
Judging hands the reins over to the “Ego”.
.
.
Let go and just be.
.
.
Without judgment you can be intense as you want, exert as much energy as possible.

Transcending Duality and the Ego Self : part two

IMG_0668

.
.
The egoic self during these states is completely animalistic (selfish and vain) and therefore feeds off negative emotionality and reaction.
.
There is very little thought involved and it is more so about satisfying the senses and most immediate desires only.
.
This includes the desires for power and manipulative control over others such as the before mentioned, alpha concept.
.
A more civilized expression is that which is constantly immersed in the drama of life, seeking attention, and therefore indulging in the emotions of victimization, helplessness, apathy, spite, anger, judgment, and superiority.
.
The primitive ego is the epitome of negativity and inability to accept responsibility, be humble, be peaceful, or even remotely open-minded.

The Mountain of Enlightenment – Transcending Duality and the Ego Self : part one

IMG_0700

.
.
As the sensation of a personal self attaches to the body in the earliest themes of awareness, the body then becomes seen as the sole source of all fulfillment through glorifying its sensual pleasures.
.
In the most unaware realms it is completely primitive and animalistic in nature in that all others are seen as ‘enemies’ and there is a constant need to protect one’s investments – the body and whatever else it has deemed as valuable or ‘mine’.
.
The attraction is to all things passionate and pleasurable to the senses and therefore the ego is completely selfish and impulsive in nature.
.
The most basic examples are the desires for food, water, sex, shelter, materialism, and physical domination/power (alpha male/female).
.
As a result of this primitive outlook the ego self as the body will then do absolutely anything to maintain control, dominance, and feed its addictions to the passions of the body including addiction to victimization and suffering itself.
.
One can most easily think of these levels of awareness as extremely immature human beings that have no possible comprehension of selflessness or love and are striving for narcissistic survival and ego inflation only.
.
It is the level of intense and absolute selfishness, greed, addiction, sadism, rage, hate, aggression, self-condemnation, and an overall complete rejection of true lovingness due to not being able to fathom caring for someone else.
.
This level of awareness is concordant with sociopaths, psychopathic killers, thieves, serial rapists and killers, megalomaniacs, ‘devil’ worshipers, and all other notions of narcissism.

Non-duality

FullSizeRender

.
.
All duality is a mind creation,
.
all duality is created by the clinging and attached mind.
.
When there is no attachment there is no duality.
.
Osho
.
.
.
.
My two cents: Non-duality points out that our ego is created, it is not real, it is a mirage.
.
If you follow an “I”, me, or mine thought backwards, it is a dead end.
.
The “ego” does not search for happiness or attain it.
.
In fact the “ego” traps us in the past or future with thoughts, judgment, and emotion.
.
The “Ego” is not bad however it needs balance and perspective.

Unattached, dying to the past

IMG_0773

.
.
A person who lives moment to moment, who goes on dying to the past, is never attached to anything.
.
.
Attachment comes from the accumulated past.
.
.
If you can be unattached to the past every moment, then you are always fresh, young, just born.
.
.
You pulsate with life and that pulsation gives you immortality.
.
.
You are immortal, only unaware of the fact.

We are the Sky!!!!!

’“You are the sky.
.
.
Everything else is just the weather.”
.

Pema Chödrön
.
.
.
.
My two cents: All that emotional thought, cognitive projections of worry, doubt or fear we grasp are mirages.
.
.
60,000 thoughts (the weather) cross our path each day, why entertain a negative one.
