I have seen the most sufferance in human life is due to emotional attachment to something or someone. Spirituality brings that dimension of awaking that every attachment today or tomorrow will lead to pain and sufferance, but if we are attached to the Divine in everything and everyone, we are assured of the ultimate happiness for then we will be united in Spirit. Stay detached to the worldly and attached to the Divine and then transcend both to the realm of Freedom in Oneness.
