The source of pain is not the belief system itself but one’s attachment to it and the inflation of its imaginary value. The inner processing of attachments is dependent on the exercise of the will, which alone has the power to undo the mechanism of attachment by the process of surrender. This may be subjectively experienced or contextualized as sacrifice, although it is actually a liberation. The emotional pain of loss arises from the attachment itself and not from the “what” that has been lost.

What if the loss is not of “ imaginary value” , but of real value ?
Hi Nikolai, Doc states “the emotional pain of loss arises from the attachment itself and not from the “what” that has been lost.” Most of us believe that the person or thing that is gone is what made us happy. Happiness comes from within, not outside of us. You may find more information in Doc’s book or CD called “Power Vs. Force”, a good one to start with: https://veritaspub.com/books-2/
Thank you Doc for such great words of wisdom.
You are a great mentor.
