Excerpt About Attachment
Attachments Seen as IdolsThe path of the heart shows us that everything we become attached to remains in our heart, filling the abode of the Guest. Our attachments become idols filling the sacred space of the Ka’ba, the holy place of the absolute Beloved. We need to recognize all our attachments, even to spiritual states, as distractions. All the levels of realization, even though they're good, wonderful, useful, and inevitably we fall in love with them, are ultimately seen to be distractions.
