The Law of Detachment

By definition —

In detachment lies the wisdom of uncertainty . . . in the wisdom of uncertainty lies the freedom from our past, from the known, which is the prison of past conditioning. And in our willingness to step into the unknown, the field of all possibilities, we surrender ourselves to the creative mind that orchestrates the dance of the universe.

How I perceive it:
  • Letting go of the things you want so badly and just believe that it will come to you at the right moment as long as you did your part.
  • Letting go of things not meant for you, for those only meant to teach you about life and about yourself.
  • Letting go of things you have absolutely no control over. Those just bring you unnecessary stress.

When you start to attach yourself to certain outcomes, then disappointment immediately follows. Guaranteed.

Simply hold every day moments in an open hand and you will see how thoughts, interactions, emotions and ideas easily come and go, and only a few, those that are meant for you, will stay.
