Just spent a glorious weekend looking at Relationship with my fellow Warriors Of Love: Where we Hangout on line. One of the distinctions we looked at was How attachments learnt at an early age from our parents affect our ability to relate to society, as I had learnt a new set of distinctions on public speaking over the 6 previous weeks it felt like distinction overload. I relooked at it today and can see the benefit of studying the ideas a bit and how attachment can run your life.
So how has society dealt with attachment over the years, lets have a look:
1. I think they call it Mindfulness these days.
2. There is no try, yummy: Yoda’s Wisest Words.
3. Ralph Marston was a professional football player who spent a season in the National Football League with the Boston Bulldogs in 1929. His incisive motivational quotes are still used to this day.
4. His Holiness rocks: Contemplate Impermanence.
5. We are taught this from a young age, it takes a lot of practice to get over our early training.
6. I spent quite a bit of time away from my mum early on, it may have had some effect later on to my relatioships, ha ha: Can’t Remember to Forget You.
7. One word, Boom.
8. Due to the early influences we need to practice this on a daily ongoing basis: Let Go of Attachment.
9. The millennials take at it.
10. Laughing at yourself, real Self Love: I Love to Laugh.

12. Now known as spiritual bypassing: Spiritual Bypassing.
13. One of a humans shadows, having to be in control, not easy to let go.
14. Is this Enlightenment?: Young and Beautiful.
15. And we finish with some uber wisdom from Ram Dass, if you need it or don’t there’s still work to be done.
I lost the sheet about the attachment styles so have meandered a bit from it, but it is worth a read.
The play list contains a lot of Spoken Word and even one silent track. We begin with Yoda, then to the silence of Art at Chance. one of our three female singers is next, it’s Shakira. Back to spoken word with Alan Watts. The over to the musical Mary Poppins. The penultimate spoken word is from Candance Van Dell and we finish with a sultry number by Lana Del Ray: There Lies Hidden Love in Each Friendship!!
I believe that racism comes from us attaching to the identities we are taught to attach to at an early age. That is why my mission is to have the world paradigm be Love and Respect for All, Everyone Included.
Until next we meet, my dear friends.
