Attachment and Detachment…



      The common human attachment, behavior and emotion are adoptive to satisfy the will of the human nature. This affection bond being regulates through Attachment Theory…an aspect of exaggeration, not wanting to be separated from someone or something…

      But, my attempt is to reach the question of Stress, as we feel because of our Tensions from every day’s life...which I like to refer, also as human Attachment, actually the key word is Anxiety, emanates from thoughts & perceptions, knowledge & experiences, act & activities etc. An unavoidable occupation…

      It is equally important, to know “How to Let go the anxiety”?

      ‘Swami Vivekananda’ once said: - “If I have to do my whole education all over again I would not be worried about facts; I would develop the power of concentration and detachment”.

      Let’s consider why he considers important of Detachment…why it’s so important!

      By the way, when we receive knowledge, a revelation get twisted out of shape into a certain limited grooves, and end up with an opinionated knowledge, while have a conflict with someone’s opinionated knowledge. However, both have same idea, but understood differently, because of our fixed preferences we find ourselves in conflict…

      Here, Detachment of mind will put in a state where mind is open to all possibilities in accommodating different viewpoints. It is in a detached way we can receive true knowledge. The approach towards detachment also plays an important role to ‘Let go’ the levels of emotions.

      To ‘Let go’ the Anxiety, we need to let go our undue preferences, letting go attachments, letting go of worries. It is being observed that, the human tendency to worry is either moving to the past or the future. Generally, worried about what has happened or what may happen! Not much learn! To live life in the now and makes the future so uncertain…

      To become happy, simply it requires Detachment from worries…
Do the best, Believe! You have done the best…Stop worrying! Pray if you want, pray for peace, support and knowledge…Done!

      Detachment doesn’t mean, to reject all life or become a ‘Sanyasi’ or never wish for expensive personal belonging, an apartment, a luxury car, a gadget, whatsoever…

      Enjoy life with detachment. As per Upanishad sayings, the condition is… ” “Whatever comes to you enjoy without sticking to it”.

An obvious Attachment..
      If you feel you should get something, work for it, without emotional pull. Don’t worry about the result, don’t be anxious, and succeeded or not. Focus should be on doing the best. This aspect of Anxiety we need to free from and learn to deal with ups and downs of life.

      One interesting fact is, at the end of the day, it's not how well I do that determines my position, but it’s how well others do which will determine it…
      So consciously introduce the idea that you are competing not against others but against yourself...

I know being over attached or even attached is the cause of many personal problems. It very difficult to detach ourselves. I wish after reading your post, I drive myself to this route. Great post!
