“We participate in attachment to the past when we attempt to determine for others what their spiritual choices should be, based on what we were taught to believe. What education we seek, what vocation we choose, who our friends will be, how we will vote, what we wear, how we speak, and even how we choose to think are often determined by attachments to traditions – traditions that are so overwhelmingly powerful that to ignore them often means complete ostracism from family or neighbors.
“You are a _____,” say your parents. “This is what you were born into, and you have no choice about it.” Such a sentiment has no place for the enlightened soul. How is it possible for anyone to grow if you always do things the way you have always done things?”
Dr. Wayne W. Dyer, in “You’ll See It When You Believe It”
