> I am not sure that I am understanding something, on one hand we are told to detatch from any outcome and on the other hand am hearing that we should be emotionaly invested in the joy of the outcome so that it will manifest. I feel that I am eather missing or missunderstanding something important. Any light you can shed will be most appreciated. Again, Thank You and Bright Blessings.
It may seem contradictory, but they are actually the same thing. The way I would suggest to people to 'detach ' from an outcome is to let go of the attachment or need to it. Have your perspective such that it feels good. So the emotions that you 'invest' towards it, if any, are light, and enjoyable.
Let go of the details, let go of any attachment or need to aspects of it. Trust that by you focusing on the essences of what is important to you, the details will take care of themselves. When you do this, what you will be doing is taking away any 'heaviness' and resistance towards it, and what you will be left with is the joy that you are talking about in emotionally investing in it.
