"Attaching To What Will Free You"
There are many stories in mystical traditions about how attachment is the cause of human suffering. In Yoga scriptures, you’ll find the tale of a hapless monkey who reaches for nuts at the bottom of a narrow lidded jar he has found chained to a rock on a jungle path. Having taken a fistful of nuts, he can’t get his fist out of the neck of the jar, even when he hears the hunters coming, the ones who set this trap for him! What exactly causes his capture– the jar, the nuts, the hunters?
During Covid, we have faced many losses and have had to let go of many attachments to people, places, things. What exactly is attachment? Are we not to have bonds of love, and staunch commitments? Are there attachments that are good for us? Can we identify with this monkey who holds onto something he desires to his own detriment? Let us explore this ancient subject of attachment in the context of the evolutionary journey of yoga as a liberative practice of freedom.
Last Satsang we offered a garland of practices, a template. We noted how living for that day when we are enlightened might be holding us back. Lets explore this treasured theme together Thursday June 10 at 7 pm.
