+ Detachment is not that you should own nothing. But that nothing should own you.
-- Ali ibn abi Talib

+ That’s it, isn’t it?

Again, it’s not that we are not going to remain attached to all kinds of earthly things in this lifetime.  But we need an attitude of equanimity which makes it possible to explore heaven right now, right here, even as we continue to be earth bound.

I would love to hear from you.  How are you doing with stillness and detachment?  Are you feeling like you are a Heavenly Being right now, right here?  Can you describe what this is like in your journal and, perhaps, share it with the rest of us?   

The goal of these grounding Mind practices of stillness and detachment is humility which will be the topic of the next series of posts after Detachment.  I have come to believe that humility is absolutely required in heaven and that’s what we are working on right now, right here as we practice, practice, practice stillness and detachment.

Humility is a most misunderstood concept but we will deal with that when we get to it soon.
