A lot of people say “Attachment is the cause of all suffering”….. I would like to disagree to that.
Attachment is not the cause of all suffering….
It is attachment that makes us fall in love with our mom when we are a baby…
It is attachment that makes us connect to our family…
It is attachment that helps us connect to our friends…
It it attachment that makes us believe and understand that monetary things are not everything…
It is attachment that helps us remain grounded.
It is attachment that tells us that we need to stay connected to our family… our roots…our culture as much as possible.
It is attachment that helps us form lifelong connections…. throughout our life…
It is attachment that helps us understand the meaning of love…!
Attachment makes us shed tears when we part from our loves ones and go to a new place… Attachment tells us to reconnect with everyone….
How can attachment be the cause of all suffering?
It is the only thing we are trying to find in our lives…. some kind of connection with others… that helps us grow and helps them grow at the same time!
Attachment is not the cause of all suffering…. It is the reason for love, laughter and all the emotions we feel on a day to day basis.
Sure… attachment makes us cry sometimes… but isn’t crying for someone because you love them…. a beautiful emotion as well?
Don’t we all want to feel attached to some people in our lives and never let them go….
Don’t we all want to feel loved and valued and even missed when we are gone….
Aren’t we all looking for that deeper spiritual connection with our family and friends….?
Love is incomplete without attachment and attachment is not the cause of all suffering…
Attachment to places takes people to visit their old schools… old colleagues… old teachers… family members…
Attachment makes you understand that no matter if you have all the wealth in the world…. you would still want a gentle hug from someone who loves you….!
When you feel attached to people….. you stay connected in your hearts even when you are miles apart….!
Attachment does not lead to pain….. it creates these little bonds in your heart…. that you can reminisce and relive whenever you want….
I am happy that my daughter is attached to me and I hope she remains that way all her life…! Even if she goes miles apart from me….. That is the deeper connection I want to have with her.
