“One definition of attachment is holding onto a fixed idea of how something is supposed to be. This ultimately catapults you into the past as your mind attempts to categorize and relate to it from a previous experience. This will only create disappointment because your new experiences will not be the same as the first, even if it’s a better experience. For example, if you expect it to snow on Christmas and it doesn’t, you may not be able to enjoy the holiday if you can’t accept the way it actually is. Also, having a rigid idea of what the future will bring causes stress because you don’t have enough information to envision the future yet, simply because you are not there.
Having said that, it’s a wonderful idea to set an intention and envision what you wish to manifest. Be open to what it looks like. It’s pretty much guaranteed it won’t look like you expect it to much of the time.”
Daniel Ryan, in “Healing from Heaven”
