A little on the art of non attachment....

25th October 2020

Today I read some interesting articles on non attachment, I wonder about financial freedom, love & the daily grind. What this means to those of us trying to live a yogic lifestyle?

Non attachment does not necessarily mean that you do not relate deeply to other people or that you do not enjoy life.

Being non-attached can mean that among other things you have faced the ultimate illusion that anything in physical form will save you or give you constant happiness.

You can enjoy the riches and beauty of life without clinging to anything or any person to give you a false sense of security or identity.

In contrast to attachment, true love springs from the divine source.

Nothing can ever be added or taken away from an aware being. Love does not seek to possess and capture. Love can only display its deepest nature by freely flowing and connecting in light with all other beings.

Here's some famous quotes from spiritual greats regarding attachment.

"The root of suffering is attachment"

– The Buddha (Buddhism)

When we come to non-attachment, then we can understand the marvelous mystery of the universe: how it is intense activity and at the same time intense peace, how it is work every moment and rest every moment.

– Swami Vivekananda (Hindu Tradition)

Consider the trees which allow the birds to perch and fly away without either inviting them to stay or desiring them never to depart. If your heart can be like this, you will be near to the Way.

– Zen saying

Act without expectation

– Lao Tzu (Taoism)

He who is attached to things will suffer much.

– Tao Te Ching

Aparigraha (or Non-attachment)

(One of the three pillars of Jainism)

Attach not thyself to anything unless in it thou seest the reality of God.

– Abdu’l-Baha (Bahá’í Faith)

Detachment is not that you should own nothing, but that nothing should own you.

– Ali Ibn Abi Talib (Islam)
