"Attachment is the great fabricator of illusions; reality can be attained only by someone who is detached."
— Simone Weil
I disagree. If attachment is only about illusions, then it pays the price for disillusionment too. We get attached to what is real, even if our emotions might be fabricating illusions beyond the reality. And therein lies the beauty.
And, indeed, one may get attached to what is superficial. That is attachment to the illusion. It does not even seek a reality.
One of the first lines of this song use word trickery to question the mind:
"O nirmohi, moh na jaane, jis ka moh kare..."
(Oh detached one, you fathom not the attraction of that which you are drawn to...)
