Transcending Obsession

This Week’s Quotation:

What words can be used to convey the reality of that love, of that great Presence in this place, in every place where human beings are particularly? Such beauty, such creative effectiveness, has been kept hidden because human beings were merely about their own personal affairs. As we have noted, personal affairs narrow down to the self-centeredness of the individual; sometimes personal affairs expand a little and include others but fundamentally, it is all the same thing. The beauty, the strength, the understanding, which is present wherever human beings are, has been kept behind the wall of human nature. The absence of these things is evident in individual lives and in the world as a whole, and yet the reservoir for a great and glorious outpouring is always present.

Transcending Obsession

David Karchere
Attunement Teacher & Author

Do you like confronting your own tendency to obsess over things? This excerpt from Martin addresses that head-on. And most obsession ends up being self-obsession when you examine it closely.

There is a great difference between obsessing over something and being masterful. Obsession tends to perpetuate the difficulty a person is obsessing about. Mastery allows a person to be free no matter the circumstance. And in the middle of whatever transpires, it lets love, creativity, and joy be known.

The end of self-obsession makes room for transcendent love, the ultimate value. And transcendent love ends self-obsession.

This is what you feel from someone who lives in Attunement. I can testify that this is what people felt from Martin Cecil when he was alive. And I appreciated the end of self-obsession that he inspired in me.

Whether or not we have someone in our life like that for us now, we can leave self-obsession behind for ourselves and celebrate the Presence of transcendent love.

We have sometimes referred to self-obsession as “pathological self-concern.” It is a destructive malaise that afflicts much of humanity. May self-obsession be replaced by Self-expression in me and in the body of humanity that I center. Thanks, David, for bringing this useful clarification to our spiritual work.

Thank you, David and Martin. I think that I and many of those I know who have had spiritual training are grateful that we do not obsess to the extent we used to do. And yet in all honesty, I DO catch myself obsessing from time to time .. and as you imply any obsessing can make the matter only worse or more prolonged. Why not “let go and let God?” I hear you and I have work to do in this area. THANK YOU. Love, Tom
