On the material plane, we create bonds and attachments to things that we need in our life. Attachments are all right if they are not our complete support system. When we hold on tightly to our attachments, we invest our heart and soul and our identity in them. We can be attached to many things like our loved ones, our pets, our car, our lifestyle, our homeand our career. The ego can get very possessive of things that support our sense of importance.
If you take an intensive retreat, you can get an idea of what your life would be away from attachments. Attachments make us feel secure, yet they are always in danger of being taken from us at any time. In every life there comes a time when we experience a loss of a loved one. We can lose our nice things if our financial situation changes. We will all come face to face with the ultimate experience of having to let go of our attachments when we face death.
Learning how to release our hold on things and people does not mean we cease to love them. It can mean we love them more because we come from a place of true Love, not need. Buddhism teaches us how to become detached, yet involved. With a focus on our inner awareness, the reality of our experience is brought up against the emptiness that is behind it. We learn from our illusions and dreams, but we are also prisoners of them. To become free, we must learn to see our life in a new Light and accept ourselves from a different perspective. The Objective Observer can be used to see the essence of our existence and why we choose our life experiences.
You can gain much by practicing these steps:
See how you feel toward them in your everyday experience after you have practiced letting them go. You should sense a freedom and a different perspective about them. Our society creates a fertile ground for having attachments in our lives. The ego identifies with what we think we need to feel good and to feel secure. The deepest security and feeling of goodness comes from our soul and God. That connection is life sustaining and will be with us always. Everything else will pass away. Invest in the eternal truth and practice releasing attachments so that you can be free to be.
I say give your life to God
For from God you come and
You shall return.
With every breath of life God is present
And it is for you to become present
To the consciousness of God.
When you give your life to God
The consciousness of God brings the gift of life
To your every moment of awareness
And the grace of Love to know as your own heart
And when you give your self to God
Then all of the little distractions of
Life that take your time and energy
Are put into a different perspective.
The Light of now is the transforming moment
Of God’s breath of life
Breathe in this moment of life now
And feel the Divine Presence of the blessings
That will bring you to where the masters meet
This place is where the will of God is served
And in this service you may understand
The way to give your self to God.
In your heart there is a compass
That will guide you to Love,
In your mind is the power to
Choose your position and direction
To follow your heart and walk the path to the place
Where the circle of life is centered within your soul
Where you will find the truth of this circle
And in this circle that has no beginning or end
You will find me.
I am in all of the moments of life
In all the moments I am that I am
So give your life to God and know
That you are giving your self to life eternal
And to the Love that created you,
It is the reason you came here for
And your purpose for being
So give your life to God and be free to be with Me.
