Detachment is experiencing our feelings
without allowing them to control us.
We step back and look at things objectively.
We let go and accept what we cannot change.
We detach from others’ choices,
knowing that their spiritual work is not ours to do.
We choose how we will act rather than just reacting.
We step away from harmful cravings.
Detachment is a deep breath of peace
and patience in response to unexpected anger.
We can listen without losing ourselves.
With detachment, we see our mistakes
honestly make amends and start afresh.
Detachment allows us to be in the world but not of it.
It frees us to lead our lives with grace.
