“Detachment is simply letting go of all you hold fast to in your mind. It doesn’t actually mean losing anything, simply changing your relationship with the things in your life today. The greatest pleasure for every soul comes as a result of choosing detachment. Why? Because attachment is a form of slavery that takes place in our own minds. And the result of detachment? Real freedom”
The art of detachment is the practice of showing up, doing your best and letting go of the results acknowledging the basic truth that everything in life has its perfect moment. It is the realization that if we do not get what we want (even if it seems like the perfect job, perfect person, perfect place, perfect opportunity, etc.) that there is probably a better time for that situation to materialize in our lives or more often than not, it may be something that is never supposed to happen at all. When we truly are able to detach from the outcome we release the dissapointment, anger or inadaquacy we feel when things don’t turn out as we thought they should. Thinking we will find our happiness in someone or something outside ourselves is only an atempt to gratify our senses and satisfy the ego which can never truly be satified. Acting from a place of attachment and clinging is acting from fear.
In contrast, the act of freeing oneself of this type of gratification for the sake of spiritul growth will allow you to access the peace and surrender that is so essential to your happiness and well being. We can learn to live and let live, look at closed doors as opportunities to turn our attention elsewhere and trust our spiritual guides to take us where we need to be. When we make decisions from a truly detached place; from a place of calm abiding, wisdom and love, instead of moving us away from our true selves, it brings us closer to the divine source of all that is
good, true, right and lovely in our lives.
