To change skins, evolve into new cycles, one has to understand to discard. If one changes internally, one should not continue to live with the same items. They reflect one’s brain system and the psyche of yesterday.
We can help dissolve these attachments with a few different practices-
Meditation. Meditation is purely sitting still and try to pay attention to the present moment whether that’s what’s around you right now, your breath, or your body. Inspirational blogs are the reason for what you’ll explore is that your brain walks away from the present moment, connecting to issues about the future, planning, remembering matters in the past. In meditation, you practice letting go of the small attachments, by identifying what your brain is doing and letting go, returning to the present moment. This happens again and again, and so you get good at it. It’s like muscle memory after doing it many times. You learn that whatever you were attached to is simply a dream, a narrative, a story. It’s not so heavy, just a bit of cloud that can be blown away by a wind.
Compassion. In this meditation, you wish an end to the suffering of others or for an end to your suffering. What happens is that this desire converts you from being stuck in your attachment, to explore a warm heart to melt the attachment and discover a way to ease it. You become larger than your story, when you want for your own suffering to end. And when you want for others’ suffering to end, you bond yourself to them, see that your suffering is the equal as theirs, and understand that you’re in this together. What happens is that your attachments become less important, not such a big thing, as you bond with others in this way.
Interdependence. Try meditating not only on the desire for the suffering of others (and yourself) to end, but for others to be happier. All others, whether you like them or not. Again, by doing this, you begin to see that you’re all connected in your desire to be happy, and in your suffering. You are not so separate from them but interdependence. This connection with others assist you to be more at ease with life or less attached.
Accepting. At the heart of things, attachment is about not getting matters to be the way they are. You want something different. That’s because there’s something about the present moment, about yourself, about the person in front of you that you don’t like. By meditating, interdependence, and practicing compassion, you can begin to faith that matters are fine just as they are. They might not be ideal, but they are just okay. Beautiful even. And you begin to become more aware of open up to the actuality of this moment and your continual rejection of the present moment instead. Over and over, this is the practice, investigating and opening the moment with curiosity, accepting it as it is.
Expansiveness. All of these practices result in a more expansive brain, that is not so narrowly focused on its little story of how matters should be, not so focused on its small aversions and desires, but can see those as part of a bigger picture. The brain can hold the little desires, and much more. It’s a big open space, like a dreamy blue sky or a deep blue ocean, and the little attachments are just a portion of it, but it can also see the problems of others and their attachments, it can see the present moment in all its flawed glorious beauty, and be present with all of this at once. Practice this expansiveness for sure.
