Sometimes I wonder if an otherwise strong sense of morality can override attachment injuries, or whether attachment just runs on autopilot especially if one is unaware.
I've paraphrased the words of the apostle Paul in Romans 7:19-21 which illustrate such inner conflict: "19 For the good that I would I do not: but the [insecure behavior] which I would not, that I do. 20 Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but [insecurities] that dwelleth in me. 21 I find then a law, that, when I would do good, [insecurities are] present with me."
For those who believe in realms unseen, could there ultimately be a spiritual aspect to this attachment thingy as well? Like the more secure one becomes in their relationship with the Creator, would it be made manifest in more secure behavior overall?
While, yes, I am a Christian, and I believe that we walk upon a 'fallen' world where we are subject to all things seen and unseen, Attachment is a brain/body functional model learned from the moment of birth and fomented before a toddler can verbally recall or express his/her memories. Twin studies confirm attachment is environmental, not biological, nor spiritual I believe, though we all have our innate and unique personality tendencies. Hopefully you have rec'd my reply not as loud or boastful, but as a whisper in your ear
