The concepts of separating, judging & resisting are attachments to dividing the Yin-Yang into Yin & Yang and not seeing them as two halves of a whole. So what we are attracting, we are dividing into good & bad.
Since what set us apart as human beings is our free will, can we then choose what to attract in life? Or do we just have to let things happen and make sure we welcome them?
What about Karma* ?
What about all our attachments, shall we just let go of them, & if so, how?
We where born at a certain time with in certain circumstances. And we have got our subconscious filled with impressions since we where in the womb. We might observe how we either act like or parents or totally opposite. How we e.g. easily say the same words to children as we where told when we where kids.
In the Bible it is described as the heritage sin. (Next time someone do something you react to, maybe ask them how their parents where doing that same thing…..and since you reacted, try to remember how your parents acted.)
Dr. Lin keeps saying: “We all posses all”.
No one is more superior, no one more lucky, no one has greater access to Dao/God, to wealth, health, love, friends than anybody else.
Where the Mind goes, the Qi follow -& move the body=our lives.
So we are left with the Mind as the source of our manifestations (attractions, attachments).
Through the free will we can choose to be conscious about our life & allow the impressions from the subconscious to emerge, we can observe ourselves & then act with a choice.
R. Aitken writes in the book “Taking the Path of Zen”:
“Attachment, as the Buddha used that term, is a blind response to some action in the past. If I’m hit, I hit back. If my parents beat me, then I beat my children. Freedom from Karma is not some miraculous wiping away of one’s past, but rather freedom from blind response to it.”
In other words, we have a choice in where to put the Mind in every situation.
* Karma is a Sanskrit word translated as “To Do” or “Action”, but it also implies the result of the action, as it is the power to influence the surroundings to determine our destiny. Some familiar translations are: “As you sow you shall reap”. “What goes around comes around”.
