I read a posting on Facebook that said:
“Try not to confuse attachment with love. Attachment is about fear and dependency and has more to do with love of self than love of another.
Love without attachment is the purest love because it isn’t about what others can give you because you’re empty. It is about what you can give others because you’re already full.”
In my dictionary attachment is not about fear nor about dependency.
The attachment of a parent for its child, for a friend, for a lover is an expression of the different types of human love. Human love, even with its faults, in all its forms, is a reflection of divine love. Humanity evolves through familial love, through the platonic love of friends and through learning the difference between lust and love with those we enjoy erotic and sensual love.
Love without attachment is detached and abstract and separates you from the oneness. To understand the divine, look within and understand yourself.
Attachment is a giving of a part of yourself to others. Do not fear attachment; rather accept it as a gift that draws you closer to the oneness since selfless love is reflected in your soul as you in turn are loved by others.
