Enjoy Ego Function

As soon as the lips speak the words “I’m not attached” with belief that un-attachment is the desired state, the concept of being someone who suffers is consecrated in the mind. 
Attachment and un-attachment are equal happenings that occur spontaneously for egos. 
But YOU are not an ego and you’ve never been in a position to get attached or lose attachments. 
Know your Self, and the function of ego can be enjoyed without making illusions of suffering. 
Thank you for being before the play of concepts! I love you!!

Appreciation

In Appreciation, ALL is a Precious Gift and there is noThing to Resist. In Attachment, there is an Unlimited Parade of things that “Need” to be Resisted for Fear of Losing that which you have Deemed “Precious” in Comparison to What you Do NOT Want.

The Movement from Appreciation to Attachment is Subtle yet Profound. You’re Invited to Watch how the Mind Leads you From Enjoying someThing to a Need to Protect, Defend and/or Hoard that Thing.

Just Watching this Inner Movement, without Needing to Effectuate any Change, Illuminates and Dissolves Mental Patters that Defile your Spirit. AND in Turn, the Physical Reflections of those Mental Patterns Lose Power in This World.

Attachment & Suffering

Attachment is created through Belief that anyOne’s Well Being depends on someBody, someThing or somePlace. This is effectively a Prayer for Suffering in that Reality evolves to Reveal the Consequences of the Thoughts we Take to be True.

If you’d like to Transmute your Prayers for Suffering into Prayers for Enjoyment, simply Notice what, where or whom you Think to be Needed for Well Being – take a Deep Breath, and Allow your Energy to be moved into Appreciation for your Present Experience of that person, place or thing.

This does Not Guarantee that Life will evolve according to what You Think you Want, but it DOES Guarantee more Experiences that Resonate with the feeling of Appreciation.

This World is formed and re-formed out of our Experiences of it. Allow This Breath to be an offering of Appreciation, and make your body/mind a Channel for Joyful Experiences.

"Should" is the Language of Delusion

Releasing “should” and “should not” from our mental dictionary is not about whether anyone should or should not take action – it’s about choosing action based on intuition rather than pursuant to our mental perception of what “should” or “should not” be done.

“Should” and “should not” are always based on mental perceptions of what we think we are supposed to do in certain situations. While doing exactly what is expected can be the same action that is in our best interest, action that emanates from our connection with Consciousness always serves our purpose.

The mind is programmed to offer thoughts that grip to expected outcomes in exchange for our action, and that is why awareness must be a CONSISTENT practice in order to be effective. When we think in terms of “should” and “should not, we create attachment to our desires – which detracts from the pure Joy experienced when action is offered as its own reward.

Attachment is delusion, and due to our worldly conditioning, we are naturally attuned to the patterns of mind that keep us bound to delusion through ego identification. Being in the present moment means acting in innocence, without the expectation that we will achieve any particular outcome as a result of our efforts.

By remembering that the journey is the destination, we may be reminded that how we feel Now is our prayer for the future that is always being created Now. Through attentiveness to our own thoughts and feelings and consistently directing our attention back to Now, we develop the overview necessary to more easily determine where we are gripping, and the trust necessary to surrender to the present moment.

Desire and even our Attachment to Desire is not a hinderance to spiritual development.  Our experience of desire is the call of Source summoning us to evolve our awareness toward greater understanding of Self; and while Attachment to Desire is what keep us bound to delusion, resisting anything is in itself a form of Attachment – which can only perpetuate our delusion. However, both Attachment and Desire are inherent to the human experience, and they evoke inner guidance in the form of emotion. (See Every Emotion has Meaning for more on “emotion”)

If we are spending our energy trying to avoid or deny either Desire or Attachment, we are laboriously creating more of both as our awareness is buried more deeply in the delusion of mind. However, when we understand, embrace and enjoy both Desire and our Attachment to it (and all delusion for that matter), we return to being present automatically, and gain deeper understanding thereby.

We can only be damned or blessed through the perception of the mind. By minding the mind, we develop the ability to discern which thoughts keep us directed toward the center – where blessings abound and peace prevails.

Go With the Flow

Most of us who try to use the Law of Attraction get discouraged very quickly because we get ideas about what we want – only to be disappointed when they don’t manifest.  But the Law works based on our vibratory resonance or dissonance to the Divine flow of the Universe – not like a genie just magically granting every wish.

It’s important to remember that we are not our bodies or our minds, but the spirit that expresses through them. Our minds are very limited, and thus they can never know what the spirit wants.

While every desire is Divine and honorable, each one is also a creative invitation for the mind to get into rhythm with the Joyful nature of the Universe.   When our vibratory offering is in perfect rhythm and flowing with spirit, we become conduits for our true Self to express through our bodies and minds – and our lives unfold effortlessly and gloriously.

But in practice, we tend to attach ourselves to specific outcomes – meaning we make ourselves feel dependent on something in the material world to make us happy.  This feeling of attachment is rooted in emotion, and its energy is counterproductive for creating anything we want.

Specifically, when we feel emotionally attached to anything, it’s because we are afraid of feeling how we felt before when we didn’t get what we wanted. This causes our energy to be expressed through emotion, and is exactly what keeps us from creating our lives according to our true desires.

The path of least resistance is very difficult to see while when our vision is impeded by the emotions that underlie our attachment. That’s why it’s imperative that we expose our emotions to the Light of our awareness if we expect to move forward in life.

Through practice and attention, we can release that which binds us to what we know – and open ourselves to the blessings that are presently unknown. By staying alert and attentive to every emotion, we can notice the physical and mental tension associated with attachment to our desires, and consciously observe them along with their associated thoughts.

By simply remembering that we are not our mind or emotion, we may be able to redirect our thoughts into alignment with what’s true about our real Self. But if the emotion does not immediately dissolve, that’s fine.

While in an emotional state, it’s helpful to take no action or as little action as possible so that we can just rest and observe our thoughts and feelings while consciously releasing tension in the body. Whenever we feel ready, another effort can be made to redirect our thoughts for improvement of our emotional/vibratory offering.

It’s common for feelings of failure or self-judgment to present themselves in conjunction with an extreme emotional state. But by loving ourselves unconditionally, we release the layers of self-judgment that otherwise prevent us from accessing and exposing the root cause of emotional attachment.

There is no hurry, but the time is always now to be presently present. Expose yourself to yourself in order to release attachment and deliver your body and mind into vibratory resonance with the Divine flow.

The most difficult thing we have to do is release mental tension about how anything turns out. As we release, we begin to recognize the Divine flow and learn to ride it’s rhythm toward the fulfillment of our destiny.
