There is a great seeming paradox in life.
It confuses our minds, yet our heart and soul know its true.
And it is all about our desires.
Or rather our attachment to achieving our desires.
Yet almost the moment we let the attachment go, they almost magically show up.
Like when we so desire to find a partner in life.
We seek and search and go out looking for that person everywhere.
What happens when we give up is we release our attachment to finding them, and now they appear.
Or when we struggle and strive so hard to achieve a business or career goal.
It feels like we've worked so hard to get that promotion or take our business to the next level.
We think about how long and hard we have worked towards that goal.
And those thoughts make it so difficult to drop the attachment to actually achieving it.
So why is that?
Why is it that when we finally drop our attachment to getting the very thing we are seeking, it comes to us naturally?
It is because so many emotions and feelings come along with the attachment.
That fear or that story around it is the very energy that keeps it from showing up.
It is the resistance to achieving it that we don't even know we are carrying around with us.
It is only through the practice of non-attachment that we drop all resistance.
By being unattached we drop the energy and become neutral to the goal.
We learn to live without it and still go on.
We can now stand in a place where we can be okay with or without it.
That place of surrender is one of the most powerful places to be.
So is there some big goal or dream you have that you are too attached to?
Let's try it and see what happens.
