What does it mean? What do ‘commitment’ and ‘attachment’ have to do with each other? Why are they positioned here as a dichotomy like ‘Dark VS. Light’ or ‘Up VS. Down’?
My answer is that Commitment & Attachment do live on the same spectrum. At any one moment in time, you can really only being living in terms of one to the degree that you are not living the other.
For example: if you are too attached to the potential outcome of something (a job, a date, a bet, etc.) then you may lose your original commitment to something else (your principles & values, your girlfriend or boyfriend, your money, etc.)
