overcome fear of death and you'll get rid of all attachments :) Quoting: andreidita
you mean dying painfully? or just dying and there being nothing but black space forever?
no, your ego/personality must subjectively die so that your soul can get in the drivers seat, and resurrect the ego, which from then on becomes only a tool for fulfilling spirit's plan.
the moment the ego accepts death you get rid of all attachments.
are you familiar with the double-slit experiment? my friend says i'm attached to my job because it affords me things like a healthy diet/supplements that i'm "attached to" because my ego says it will help me ascend. she says i should quit my job and rely on the "force" to take care of my "needs". she says it relates to kind of what you're saying and that many are doing this now, quitting their jobs not knowing where the money will come from. she also mentions gregg braden...
Q-what does one do to reach enlightenment
A- chop wood , carry water
Q what does one do once enlightened?
A - chop wood , carry water
it isn't your job or reliance on money for sustainance which 'holds you back '
it is the belief that they hold you back which does that
you are responsible for your 'needs'
you are accountable for how you provide for yourself
if you are screwing others to get your pay , to pay for the supplements which you believe will help you ascend - then you have got it wrong
if you work honestly , fairly and decently and your encounters with society reflect this attitude - in all your dealings
whatever you do with your income - you will be helping yourself ascend
it isn't about what you put into your body
it's about the mindset you havecultivated while doing ANYTHING
eg chopping wood , carrying water
that's how i see it
