Detachment from material goals

When you detach yourself from the compulsion of owning things just for the sake of owning them you begin to experience real freedom and joy from things that really matter.

By clearing the clutter from our lives, we can all make room for things that truly add value: health, relationships, passion, growth, and contribution.

Detachment in relationships

Most of us misunderstand love to be all about holding on to the other person, trying to fix them and taking care of them in all ways possible.

We need detachment to not take personally other people's reactions, to not seek outside validation and to draw boundaries so that others don’t control us.

Attachment and control

Attachment and control

With attachment comes a very strong urge to control the circumstances.

You put yourself at risk by investing so much of yourself into something, unwilling to believe that there is a tiny chance that it might not quite work out the way you plan.

Detachment from your own thoughts

Don't act upon your thoughts and feelings. They are not the ultimate truth or reality.

Detachment from thoughts allows you to see your thoughts from an outside perspective, letting them come and go without allowing yourself to feel too much about them.

Passion and attachment

Feeling too much passion and attachment towards something can skew our perception of it.

And that's risky because it can make us unwilling to see the flaws in our plan.

Simone Weil
“Attachment is the great fabricator of illusions; reality can be obtained only by someone who is detached. ”
