Reverse attachment?


I have been trying to sell my flat for about two years now. Not because of any financial difficulty or because I don’t like it, nor do I have specific plans of moving someplace else. I am not necessarily in a hurry either. It’s simply that over the past few years, I have been systematically reducing and/or eliminating all of my belongings. As the great Krishnamurti once said, ‘To have inner order, one must first have outer order.’ So, the less clutter on the outside will facilitate the decluttering on the inside. I need to feel lighter and freer. The problem is, this flat doesn’t seem to want to leave me…so what is this? Reverse attachment? :-)))) How do you explain to a house that’s it time to let go?
