“As long as you have an attachment to anything, a circumstance, your past, a person, or a need of any type, you will be subservient to the attachment. In a subservient position, you are neither free nor living from the seat of your power.
How do you recognize if you have attachments in your life? Look for things that you consider you need. If you must have a particular outcome to a situation, you have a need. If you feel your safety or happiness will be compromised when a particular outcome is not achieved, you have a need.
When you have an attachment, the need for feeling safe will motivate you to find ways to take control of the situation. The only thing you know to do is to control or manipulate the outcome if possible. If you are not attempting to control or manipulate the situation either subtly or overtly, you may still experience stress through worry or fear about the outcome. When you become aware of your attachments, you may be amazed at the amount of energy expended in maintaining your safety through your attachments.”
Clarence Deigel, in “Experiencing Life Through the Chakras”
