don't confuse love with attachment.
attachment arises from the mind. it creates jealousy, possessiveness, demands, and many other complications. in attachment, there's a transaction of emotions. when the expectations aren't fulfilled in this transaction, there is hate, anger, and even violence between the two. love, on the other hand, is a state of our awareness. it is unconditional, healing, and doesn't need the demands or expectations to be fulfilled. love wants to evolve into new dimensions of divinity while attachment wants to stick to confinement of labels and rigidity. one of them creates anxiety and the other creates strength and empowerment.
when we confuse love with attachment, there will only be misery and pain. makes sense!?
I'll be discussing this and a lot more on love & relationships at the @denmeditation retreat 'rise in love' happening in Sedona, AZ in August 2019. it's a perfect weekend gathering with like minded souls!
