highest and best










Attachment limits our possibilities.  We know that, but doing something about it is a whole different matter.

As I meditated on this theme, here’s some of the information that came through:

Attachment is a theme that permeates all at this time. When you are attached, you are fiercely desirous of a certain outcome.  Again, this is a belief that all is outside of you instead of a part of what you have created. You have set up the situation for your journey. Others are involved.  How this situation unfolds is not yet known. There are probabilities, but no certainties.  

At a soul level you are good at moving from possibility to possibility, but the human-you gets attached to a desired outcome. This is like beating on a closed door over and over instead of noticing what other doors you might knock on.

This is why it is so important to observe life while still being fully engaged, being “in the world, but not of the world;” feeling and thinking without becoming the emotion or the thought form. This is not easy for humans. Fear has dominated for so long that it seems better to hang on to what you are grasping, instead of trusting that you can easily shift and change as needed.

As often happens, my inner guidance is suggesting that I step back and observe the situation with curiosity, instead of managing it from my human desire.

I have a saying that helps me make this shift:  “This or somdoverelease_1ething better, whatever is highest and best for me and all others involve.”

Recently a friend sent this reminder from Deepak Chopra as found in the Seven Spiritual Laws of Success

“In detachment lies the wisdom of uncertainty . . . in the wisdom of uncertainty lies the freedom from our past, from the known, which is the prison of past conditioning. And in our willingness to step into the unknown, the field of all possibilities, we surrender ourselves to the creative mind that orchestrates the dance of the universe.

I will put the Law of Detachment into effect by making a commitment to take the following steps:

  1. Today I will commit myself to detachment. I will allow myself and those around me the freedom to be as they are. I will not rigidly impose my idea of how things should be. I will not force solutions on problems, thereby creating new problems. I will participate in everything with detached involvement.
  2. Today I will factor in uncertainty as an essential ingredient of my experience. In my willingness to accept uncertainty, solutions will spontaneously emerge out of the problem, out of the confusion, disorder, and chaos. The more uncertain things seem to be, the more secure I will feel, because uncertainty is my path to freedom. Through the wisdom of uncertainty, I will find my security.
  3. I will step into the field of all possibilities and anticipate the excitement that can occur when I remain open to an infinity of choices. When I step into the field of all possibilities, I will experience all the fun, adventure, magic, and mystery of life.”

Considering how to step away from attachment, I am reminded that color complements connect the human self to our inner wisdom.  These releases fear of a less-that-desired outcome and reminds us of what we know deep within. I now surround my attachment to certain outcomes with yellow and purple, asking that these color frequencies help me shift from grasping onto what seems the best outcome to celebrating possibilities yet to be revealed.
