Attachment Causes Indecision, Bad Decisions, and Stagnant Energy:
I was just commenting on a point from alisontherabbithole, about something my sister Catherine M Cadieux says to me all the time about material things, gifts and talents we have, or anything we have an attachment to...
Here's a copy of my comment:
It's So True! You have to give it away to get more back. It keeps the energy flowing in a positive direction. The more I do towards my intention to succeed, the more I need to give away, the more I get back. It works this way for me. My last 100 day challenge caused me to go to Europe and Live in Spain for 2 months and travel! I firmly believe that attachment leads to indecision and stagnant energy. Don't get too attached to things, give them away, keep it moving, change is good.
Living out of a small suitcase and a small backpack for 2 months and walking everywhere everyday was the best thing for me. It taught me how much I can do without. Since I'm a true American pack rat of old, now reformed, that is saying something.
The point is a simple one:
We have to let go and give it away!
It's the only way. Attachment breeds all kinds of negative human emotions and qualities we are not allowed to focus on here.
For me, attachment causes indecision and stagnant energy. It takes me to a very negative space where I don't like myself, my life, and all the junk I have amassed. Indecision and stagnant energy are responsible for world wars and all kinds of human strife. Attachment. No good ever comes of it.
Here is the idea: Whatever you get, you must then give it away! Not always right now. Enjoy it while it is useful and serves a good purpose, but when it does not, or is no longer useful to you, pass it on.
Give it to someone for whom it has meaning right now. By doing so, you free yourself from attachment and indecision, and a great weight is lifted, making you feel freer and quite liberated. At the same time, new energy is given to the item and passed on to the one who needs it. Where does this energy come from? From us of course. That is why it feels so good to give.
When we participate in Source and Divine Power in this way, we not only feel better, but by putting it out there to the Universe, we receive even more. We receive more than we could ever want or need. That is the Ultimate Detachment. To receive more than you could ever want or need (Abundance), so all you can do is give everything else away to others!
Not a bad way to be.
