I was lucky enough to be a guest at one of the finest spas in the world, Ananda in the Himalayas.
While there, I attended a lecture on the Buddhist philosophy on detachment.
It was a good lesson.
I pondered on it and patted myself on the back about all the times I had “practiced” detachment.
The Mandala I choose was called Mandala of the Mothers, and talked about creativity and how important it was to be able to actively destroy a piece of art.
I froze… it meant that I was going to do my best work on this piece and then actively Detach and Destroy.
It made me very sad.
I thought that I may as well just destroy it before I did my best with it.
THEN… the true detachment lesson appeared to me.
“Do your very very best, then detach from it.”
What can you detach from today?
Love and light
