The Practice of Detachment
Distribuie!       Aboneaza-te!
In life, I practice detachment by embracing the transcended void. A void-ness that stands right in the middle between this and that, all inclusive, having no opposites. The void of emptiness is the source of all forms – there is nothing excluded or opposed but filled with life and the power of love for all beings. To ones of all life is a truth that can be fully realized only when false notions of a self separate self, whose destiny can be considered apart from the whole, are forever annihilated. 
To cultivate a state in aesthetic creation in the deepest psychic and personal experiences of a human being, is being able to articulate and feel in an intelligible and generally accepted framework of an ideal world. 
Too may times, we get angry at the world and ourselves for things not within our power to change. This self-induced negativity is very destructive and causes fear. There are no absolutes in the essence of human life. There are no one sided promotions of the spirit, soul and senses, but only the opening of all human capacities thought, feelings, will to the life rhythm in the world of nature. It remains rather a continuum medium for reflection on baby steps toward development of the ideal self not found in shape and form, but which must radiate from the bottom of the human soul in harmony with the cosmos. 
In my life, I have accepted the idea of mastering the will. Winning and loosing, pride and pain are temporary and superficial concepts that can not change the course of nature in life. What is important is avoidance of the superficial, penetration of the complex, going to the heart of the matter and pinpoint the key factors that influence life one way or the other and in the end interfere with our objectives. 
Thought can be enlightened by intuition. By understanding the complexities of human behaviors toward power and control, attachments, confinements and the partial dynamics of life, it becomes possible to understand the causes of actions. Let nature take its course, and your will, calm and undisturbed free from the complicated ego, self-preservation impulses and anything destructive that is bothering your mind. Control of the will means overcoming your own greed, anger, folly and annihilation of all things that stand in the way of peace, justice and humanity. 
Pure-heartedness and empty-mindedness is inherited in humans. Discipline must conform to the laws of nature or it will cause distortion from reality and artificial drift further and further into mystery and abstraction. A conditioned mind is never a free mind. Critical thinking is the key to freedom and is just the beginning of the journey, not the end.  
Knowledge is fixed, whereas, knowing is continual. Learning is never cumulative, from a source, accumulation, or conclusion, but a movement of knowing which has no beginning and no end. Most of the time we express and idea, concept, religious belief which is not an expression of what we really feel inside. We do it for the sake of gaining acceptance and to gratify our ego for the need of security when we are afraid to state our true feelings about a certain issue or subject. The need for conformity provides a sense of belonging without the risk of controversy and need for justification and qualification needed when our true feelings deviate from the norm. The elimination of conflict is the path of least resistance at the expense of growth and maturity. Without controversy there can be no advancement. Unquestioned and full compliance and with the status quo produces stagnation and complacency not progress. 
How can we understand ourselves if we are part of the classical pattern connected to tradition, routine, bias and total partiality. This becomes an anchor that holds and ties down any attempt to break the mold, to understand oneself and gain the freedom from beyond the field of the consciousness. 
The wisdom of the past suggests that one should not start from conclusions. Acceptance, denial and convictions prevent understanding. To have positive understanding and real communications with sensitivity, I practice detachment from my own self and immediate concerns and let the mind tap into the great emptiness moving with others in a state of choice-less awareness where there is no sense of comparison or condemnation, no waiting for further development of discussion, evaluation, or review in order to agree or disagree, just merely observe. No conclusion and no perception without choice, without demand, without anxiety, a totally fresh state of mind, totally new. Understanding the problems dissolves the problem, or the comprehension that the answer is never too far from the problem.
