In this current political season, it is easy to see other people’s attachment. And hopefully, that allows us to also see our own.
Does being attached serve anyone? Does it help the situation? Is that #aworldthatworksforeveryone ?
Change your thinking, change your life
In Science of Mind, we have a catch-phrase: Change your thinking, change your life. This means that if there is something in our lives that we want to change, we can change how we think about it and thus bring a different result in our lives. This works in any area you can imagine, from health to work to inter-personal relationships to finances and more.
5 Levels of Attachment
In Don Miguel Ruiz Jr’s book, The Five Levels of Attachment; Toltec Wisdom for a Modern World, he describes 5 levels or ways of mental/emotional being, ranging from non-attached to fanatic.
Listening Allows Understanding
In the book, don Miguel Jr encourages us to listen deeply to other people’s points of view without interrupting with our own beliefs. That includes not interrupting them in my mind. This practice provides an opportunity to understand the person’s hopes and desires. And at the bottom line, we all want the same things: Peace, love, happiness. It’s just that in a world of billions of people, we have widely varying ideas about how this can be accomplished.
Rev. Deborah Johnson spoke eloquently in this video “Hear Not Fear” about not fighting hate with hate.
