detachment

   “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”

Raga:  The Klesha of Attachment
 
Raga is translated at attachment and attachment causes suffering when we try to hang on to things that are impermanent or chase after a a certain experience that caused us pleasure.  Like all the kleshas, or afflictions, at their core lies confusion of what is permanent and impermanent, real and unreal and largely based in fear.  Unhealthy attachment is born of fear of not getting what we want, fear of losing what we have, fear of letting go.  
 
The opposite of fear is faith.  So to release the grip of Raga we need to have faith and a deep understanding that the the comings and goings of all we love and find comfort in are a natural part of the cycle of life; letting go allows you to access the peace of mind you seek.  When we make decisions from a truly detached place; from a place of calm abiding, wisdom and love, we set the inner spirit free to move us toward all that is good, true, and right in our lives.   Letting go of attachments to how things should be, of what we need to be whole, happy human beings,  allow our lives to be a  journey of wonder, gratitude and contentment.

 Do not try to save the whole world or do anything grandiose.
Instead, create a clearingin the dense forest
of your life and wait there patiently, until the song
that is your life falls into your own cupped hands
and you recognize and greet it.
Only then will you know how to give yourself
to this world so worthy of rescue.
