Attachment takes on many forms, obviously. High pressure hoses turned on those in prayer illicits some powerful reactions. But I find myself wondering if the clinging on display in the world, when recorded and shared like this picture, will lose at least some of it’s energy. If it can, the promise of opening can manifest.
Of course, this opportunity may very well lead to yet more contraction in which we watch the social, political, economic and “spiritual” centers of gravity bring everything into a tighter orbit with fixation and small self reactions to what is being offered.
Let’s hope that all beings can be mindful of their clinging; that all beings can remember that a kiss and the love behind it is what moves us.
