Connection vs Attachment

Connection vs Attachment
August 07, 2013, 08:47:24 PM
Connection is about the highest, mightiest thing in life that I can conceive of. The life-long love for another person. The memory of that landscape (whatever it might be) frozen in your mind. Beauty. Terror. The point at which music seems a greater motivating force than the transient, everyday rabble.

Basically, a reason beyond the self, coupled with the thought that one day you will be dead and that even physical pain will be nothing compared to the inevitable loss of whatever connections you were able to make in life as you see it coming to an end.

I had to sever attachment to the material in order to connect with The Divine.
With no guarantee of being able to return to the material, by doing so.
That willing leap of faith allowed me to have both, but I didn't know that, until after the fact.
Yes, connection is more rewarding than attachment. Infinitely more.
The material, by itself, is a pale, shallow thing.
No wonder so many are so terminally bored.
