Attachment

Do you realize that when you oppose something you become attached to it. Your being is tied up with that which you oppose.

What will you be when that thing changes or fades away?

Maybe you are tied to an idea or political movement. You become it. As it goes, so go you.

Be careful of your attachments. You think you are free. But you are not. You are defined by that which is attached.

Many psychologists and spiritual teachers will help you toward self-observation. Obtain a point of view slightly above and beside you. Observe without judgement what you do.

Was it something embarrassing? Do not feel embarrassment. Observe what happened. When the situation once again occurs, be reminded of the inappropriate actions and words. Observe yourself acting with wisdom and compassion.

Self-observation can lead to awareness.
