Attachment

Filed under: Uncategorized — drtone @ 12:37 pm

Attachment, on the other hand, involves identification with the products of the conscious mind, and concern for the later effect of actions done in the present moment. Instead of free play, attachment is therefore about constrained expectations of the future, hoping that the world will conform to my expectations about it, or wishing that it had already done so. Because it consists in wanting things to go my way, attachment is therefore a story about me, my past and my future. For that reason, attachment is little more than a dream, because neither the past nor the future exists.
