Any tips for right contemplation (yoniso manasikara, one of the most effective tools for enlightenment taught by the Buddha) which can effectively cut through attachments would be very much appreciated. I don't remember seeing such a discussion here and thought it'd be helpful to exchange our experience on this important practice.
You need to know the affect attachment has on you before you realise the destructiveness of it and let go of it.
Much of insight meditation practice is just gathering data, once you've gathered a lot of data you start to see patterns in how attachment arises and how it affects you, you sfeel it in the body, you see the affect on the mind. Eventually you naturally see the pointlessness of it and just give it up, or at least do so in degrees.
Here's some info on yoniso manasikara http://www.accesstoinsight.org/index-su ... ollections
I think usually this happens naturally as a result of insight practice.
