Attachment Causes Indecision, Bad Decisions, and Stagnant Energy

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.

Just be.

It is so true....clutter depresses me and getting rid of clutter energizes me! How do I sometimes forget this and get back in the clutter-mode? I am not sure, but I definitely agree with all the comments here.

Join your local freecycle group through yahoo.groups and you can post your unwanted stuff and people will come and pick it up from you...what could be easier. I have been doing this for 2 months now and it's great!

I LOVE your posts! You have great insights and experiences! Thank you for posting them so I can learn, too. I love your art as are a talented guy!

I've been working on clearing out for 3 years now--since my divorce. Whenever I get bogged down in the process, I find I also get depressed. Obviously my inner blocks are manifesting in my house. I'm going to go clear more out right now!

The topic of cleaning out has been on my mind, and your comments tweak my perspective toward greater understanding. Reminds me of line from a couple songs, too: "Don't give up, You've got a reason to live; Can't forget you only get what you give..." (New Radicals) and "Love isn't love 'till you give it away" (Michael W. Smith). The principle applies to everything!

Interesting that you brought this up, as I just saw a show from Oprah, about a woman who brought in too much stuff into her home, so much, that they were not able to move around. That is attachement at it's worst.
At the same time, it motivated me to let go off a few things yesterday, I did not even think of before.
Why did I have boxes of crafts materials, when we only work out of one?
Someone else can apprechiate it! I agree, that in order to receive more, you have to give what you want. And like you said, it doesn't mean to deprive yourself, it just means to let it go, once you do not use it anymore, or share, if you have enough for you and someone else. You bless yourself and the other person that way - and in a way the entire Universe.

You couldn't have called my attention to this at a better time!! Thank you for giving me a shove in the right direction today...I needed it!!!

Dear Sunsurfer, thanks so much for this posting. I asked for direction this moring on the very subject of indecision--and POOF, here was an answer. You've said a lot on this and I will need to re-read and ponder it all and allow it to crystalise. What I know for sure is that it resonated quite strongly with me.
Bless you,
- Sue

Here's a tip that I've discovered. I used to stack up boxes of stuff to organize & give to charity. I would make a list of everything so I could get the tax deduction, and spend time finding a charity that would take all the stuff (many are picky about what they take).

No longer. Now I just gather a few things in the back of my car & make a charity run each week (and don't worry about receipts). If I have stuff that a charity might not take, I don't spend any more time on it -- just put it on my corner (I live on a busy street) and it's gone in 10 minutes. Someone may take it to use or sell in a flea market -- whatever, it's getting returned to the universe & now I have space!

In order to pay the heat, taxes, food you need the human attachment. Unless one is independently wealthy or dependent upon others to provide. It is nice to celebrate the "being" - I do it every day. Also, it is best to be very downsized and sustainable.
