Currently Learning Detachment

I have been learning how to bring detachment into my life over the last few years and feel compelled to share my experience here and would like to hear about other people's experiences.

My attachment to form has caused suffering which motivated me into action to be completely detached in every area. I learnt about detachment from Dyer's 'You'll See It When You Believe It' book which has been fantastically helpful to me. I was particularly inspired by his thoughts early on in the book about getting our priorities right, paying more attention to the 99% of our being which is in thought and less to the 1% in form. Dyer's advice that we have the ability within us to experience this entire range of physicalness in complete comfort and peace was a great inspiration. I have found the idea of living in pure thought or spirit as i prefer to call it very helpful in become detached from external 'stuff'. I create a kind of parallel existence in thought where i can experience everything that i want to have in form. It has helped me to keep my attention on what i want a lot more which will help me manifest the thought-form. In thought i can really experience anything i want without the physical limitiations of form or the suffering that can take place through living only in form.

I have started to become an observer to the character that i am currently playing in this drama. I have learnt that cultivating serenity is more important than the aquisition of things. Whenever i feel that i am suffering i remind myself that all the problems i create are 'out there' and if i only concetrate on the dimension that constitues 'me' (thought) i will find peace and an escape from these illusions we call problems.

I would love to hear about how others have learnt to drop their attachments and maybe can offer some ideas that i may have missed or better techniques. With love, Matt.

Hi Matt,

Welcome to the discussion.

On a very simple level, I've used detachment to solve common head aches that happen from time to time.

Whenever I feel one coming on, I just remind myself that the part of me that is perfect and non physical is incapable of having a head ache and therefore I can't really have a head ache... I can have the physical and biological feeling of a head ache, but the part of me that is not physical is not able to ever have head aches.

Anyway, it works for me...

Hi Chris and thank you, that's a great thought. Coincidentally that seems to be the perfect piece of advice i was looking for... i get those little headaches you're talking about sometimes too. Matt.
