Being attached is often defined as an affectionate or excessive tie to a person, animal, or thing. The formation of attachments usually begins with our very early experiences as children and can often have a lasting impact on the relationships we form later in life.
Attachments can be enduring, or they can be overbearing, causing the other person to feel suffocated rather than supported. Attachment to things can cause people to experience a limited life since they feel they cannot live without these things. Have you examined your own attachments? What motivates your attachments? Are they excessive or helpful?
Sadhguru addresses the popular belief that one’s attachments are the causes of suffering. He offers us an alternative way to live that can naturally bring well-being and happiness instead.
