67. (Advanced) The Tachments

One course of action that can easily lead to disaster is the failure to differentiate between the basic kinds of tachments:

- attachment
- detachment
- retachment
- nontachment

The latter is commonly called 'non-attachment', a term which is technically correct if it is properly understood.

'Attachment' is a necessary side effect of any goal construct (cp.. the chapters on 'goals' for workable definitions of 'goals' and 'goal constructs').

It simply means that the goal construct has to be maintained until the objective of the goal has been reached. If this would not be done, the objective obviously could never be achieved.

The problem is not the attachment in regards to currently active goal constructs, but rather the massive amounts of past goal constructs that were never properly dissolved.

Inspection shows that the resolution of past goal constructs is independent of their respective successes or failures.

In other words, a goal construct can and often does carry over even after its original objective was met.

Thus the basic problem of being bound to the Physical Universe and to the vastness of appearances within the same, can be viewed as a collection of uncritical attachments to goal constructs from the past.

Any attachment can therefore be resolved in a split second using the method of decomposition of goal constructs as outlined in the 'Little Purple Notebook On How To Escape From This Universe'.

The inability to decompose goal constructs in the past has tempted many to try some of the following shortcuts:

- rejecting the energy of 'will' itself (retachment),
   prevailing in many Eastern philosophies;

- opposing the objective of the original goal
   construct(s), effectively creating a new, compound
   construct often referred to as 'Goals, Problems,
   Masses' or GPMs);

- moving the entire goal construct into a 'hidden'
   corner of the person's mental space (detachment).

It does not require much imagination to visualize the inefficiency and the catastrophically results of these shortcuts:

- while the 'will' can be subdued temporarily,
   especially when removing anything out of one's
   life that could trigger a memory of the original
   objective, the 'will' will be recreated in full
   force once the objective or any related trigger
   comes back into sight. More often than not,
   the energy of the recreated 'will' is greater
   than the original energy;

- the opposition to the original goal locks the
   old goal construct in place while creating a
   new goal construct on top of the old one;

   To make this work out, at least for
   some time, the energies put into the new
   goal construct must surpass the energies within
   the old construct.

   This constitutes a 'vicious cycle' - the
   strength of the problem and masses connected
   to it must increase with every round.

   This entire phenomenon is often called a GPM
   (Goals, Problems, Masses).

   Furthermore, this self-propelling mechanism
   takes place at the very bottom of the range
   of emotions (the so-called 'tone scale').

   Any trigger on the original goal construct
   and any of its many derivatives is pushing
   down the person towards the lower range of
   this scale of emotions;

- moving the entire goal construct into a
   'hidden place' in mental space will make it
   a 'time bomb'. Since it is a lie of major
   proportions that 'time will heal all wounds'
   it is just a matter of said time until it
   will blow up.

All of these shortcuts contain a couple of
additional problems:

- non-confronted issues are located somewhere
   in mental space. After using above shortcuts
   the person will not be willing or even able
   to look into the direction or spatial depth
   of the non-confronted issue. The Being is
   effectively creating a 'box' which it will
   find itself unable to leave.

- the unconfronted issues become a considerable
   unwanted payload and will trigger unwanted
   reactions in the future.

- the unconscious awareness of the 'failures'
   that are associated with the original goal
   constructs and its pseudo resolutions are
   impacting the ability to resolve future goal
   construct in a destructive way.

It is therefore of utmost importance that every goal construct is being decomposed in its 'will' and its 'objective', as described in other chapters of this notebook.

Goal decomposition thus becomes ultimately the most basic and important action in processing and it results in a complete resolution of the phenomenon known as 'attachment'.

Because of the many shortcuts that a Being tried before realizing these traps, this decomposition of goal constructs will often require preliminary handlings, such as:

- 'GPM handling' to take off the worst charge
   on top of goal constructs (see for example
   'The Pilot' or similar write-ups on how to
   do this);

- entity handling to find out 'who's goal
   construct' it _really_ is or was;

- 'valence (or identity) handling' to strip
   false solutions;

- whatever else is in the way of accessing the
   original components of the goal construct(s).

This should make clear that, even though goal construct decomposition is a major undercut to many other processes, it still requires most major tools in processing in order to reach a point at which it can be done.

One aspect that wasn't talked about much in the other chapters of the Notebook on this very topic, was the third component of the goal construct, the 'sattva' part (in 'gunas' terminology) or the 'beingness' part in 'modern' terms.

To recap, here is a table to demonstrate the congruency of various angles of views of the goal construct:

  sattva, beingness, the perceived 'I'
  rajas,  doingness, 'will', yang
  tamas,  havingness, 'objective', yin

After the goal constructs have been decomposed into 'will' and 'objective', the Being may still have a remarkable collection of self-created 'beingnesses'.

'Beingnesses', once assumed are NOT resolving by 'going to the earliest similar'.

The assumption of a 'beingness' is a decision made in 'present time' at each occasion and it is the core action of the manifestation of a Being in this Physical Universe.

Many of those 'beingnesses' do not create a problem at all. Some, however, are stuck at one point of a series of such assumptions, and this point is NOT necessarily the FIRST occurrence of the assumption of a Beingness.

The traditional 'going earlier-similar' method must therefore be slightly modified, yielding the

     'Beingness Fast Traceroute Procedure'

Emphasis is here on a _fast_ recall of past similar beingnesses without inspection of any of the involved circumstances. A  compulsive Beingness will NOT resolve if the viewer gets
sidetracked into whatever particularities of the past.

With 'fast' is meant recalling 'more than one past Beingness per SECOND'.

One, and not the first (!!), will be found stuck and the indicators of the resolution of a stuckness cannot be mistaken once they occur.

It may be necessary to interrupt this procedure if the 'Beingness' in question has still related goal constructs. It can be resumed after any such handling.

It should be clear from the above that the 'Fast Traceroute' requires considerable ability and experience in past-life-recall.

This process could therefore be seen as the most 'advanced' and far-reaching process presented in this Notebook.

Lastly, it should also be clear that a resolution of past Beingnesses will never impede the creation of a future Beingness. In the contrary, one of the remarkable end phenomena of this process
is the recognition of one's unlimited ability to assume ANY Beingness whatsoever.

This is because there are no limits to creating any new Beingness if there are no stuck past Beingnesses left over.

And, again, whether a Being chooses to continue to create Beingnesses within this Universe or not is most certainly a choice that a Being can only make once it has reached this very point at which it is now able to make any choice whatsoever, including the freedom of not exerting any choice at all.

Thus, any speculation about the true nature of 'nirvana' is nothing more than the product of an  unclear(ed) mind.
