Detachment

Detachment is the ability to walk away. It doesn't mean you actually do walk away. A friend of mine practices the feeling of detachment while showering. How do you feel dry? Imagining a separation between the water and your skin even as it pours onto you. Even as you feel the warmth. Mostly when we think of relaxing, we talk about the physical side. The next level is mental relaxation. When somehow you manage to pause your concern for all the things that matter to you. Not stop. Pause. The third level is when you are able to relax what it is you think you are. When you pause the separation between you and everything else. That is detachment. You stay connected. You can only stay connected. But (you) becomes )you(.
