Realizing Attachment And Its Different Types (Part 1)
Attachment can be at two levels - either 𝐢𝐧𝐭𝐞𝐫𝐧𝐚𝐥 or 𝐞𝐱𝐭𝐞𝐫𝐧𝐚𝐥.
✱Some common 𝐞𝐱𝐚𝐦𝐩𝐥𝐞𝐬 of external attachments are:
➥ your own physical body,
➥ people (their physical body, physical personality, their role of any type, their actions, qualities, specialties or any other sanskars)
➥ your position or role in your family, society or in your professional field,
➥ shopping and physical comforts,
➥ technology and different mediums of technology,
➥ the way you look or dress up or present yourself physically or your complete physical personality,
➥ a particular skill in action,
➥ a particular interest or hobby like watching movies, online social networking, etc.
➥ your routine or a certain way of working at home or at the workplace,
➥ respect from others,
➥ how people see you or behave with you or what they think of you
and many others.
We have mentioned a few examples, which we need to check closely and start overcoming. Spirituality teaches us 𝐬𝐨𝐮𝐥 𝐜𝐨𝐧𝐬𝐜𝐢𝐨𝐮𝐬𝐧𝐞𝐬𝐬 and also 𝐒𝐮𝐩𝐫𝐞𝐦𝐞 𝐒𝐨𝐮𝐥 𝐜𝐨𝐧𝐬𝐜𝐢𝐨𝐮𝐬𝐧𝐞𝐬𝐬. These are the two primary experiences, which empower the soul to overcome external attachments and its different forms, which prevent the soul from experiencing complete freedom.

Message for Today
"The one who understands God's love is himself loving too"
Expression: The one who understands that 𝓖𝓸𝓭 𝓱𝓪𝓼 𝓵𝓸𝓿𝓮 𝓯𝓸𝓻 𝓪𝓵𝓵 𝓬𝓱𝓲𝓵𝓭𝓻𝓮𝓷, unconditional and limitless love for all beings. No matter what you are, and what you do. Now.. there is the understanding that it is not the person who is negative, but it is only a negative quality working within that person at that time. A loving person's love discourages the other person to use the negativity and encourages to use the positive qualities instead.
Experience: When I am connected with God, I am able to experience His love. Once I understand and experience His love, I am able to remain loving too - even with the most difficult people, even under a challening situation. I am then able to have good wishes for all, understanding that my love will make them positive too. I am never caught up with anyone's negativity, but am always happy as I only interact with positivity.
