"I am by nature a dealer in words. Words are the most powerful drug known to Humanity" - R Kipling
I used to think how attachment meant how much I cared about someone or something. Through my exploration and inquiry, I now realize that there is much suffering and expectation connected within the world of attachment. What would it feel like to still be engaged but not attached? Is this what commitment feels like?
Recently, I was organizing an event, a play afternoon for Adults...and the closer it came to the event date, the more angry and pressure I felt. As I looked, I noticed that I had some attachment to how many people were coming, what I would do with them once they arrived and who was going to do what and so on...
As soon as I let go and gave up my agenda of how I wanted things to go, I felt more relaxed inside. The pressure left and I felt a spaciousness inside of me where I began to feel some excitement again. It felt mysterious.. and with this feeling, there is a sense of trusting something bigger than me to take over... That my intention for the event it to show up and have fun... and whoever comes will be perfect and we will get to know each other, have authentic conversations and co-create art and music.
The more unattached I became, the more at peace I felt. Here is a list of the two worlds.
The World of Attached.
Talk to much
The World of Committed
What world do you live inside of?
Are you committed or attached?
Neither of the worlds are wrong... just start noticing how you feel inside and how that effects your relationships and conversations.
I am committed to Play, Exploration, Self Expression and LOVE!
