Detachment here means living here but knowing at the same time that all that we are seeing around us are temporary only. We cannot get attached to them because one day we will have to leave all and go away. Nothing is ours. In fact, our own physical bodies are not ours because we are just using them.
It does not mean that if a person is detached with everything that he or she lives in a remote area where he or she is not in contact with anyone or something like that. There have been many misunderstandings about the same. You live here but you do your duties only. Be a responsible person.
Being detached means you are just taking care of everything without possessing anything. You have children, so you take good care of them. You assume all the responsibilities needed but know also that they also are not going to be permanently with you. They cannot stay with you all the time. They will have their own responsibilities too. Let them live their lives too as per their duties.
You just have to accept the facts of life and death. As long as you do not accept, you are creating your own sufferings.
Those who fear to be detached with things or people whom they love so much, I have a question for you.
When you go to sleep, are you not scared?
Here, I am not saying to be scared of darkness. I am talking about leaving everything you are attached to.
Whenever I asked this question ‘How many of you are ready to leave everything?‘, most of the answers come like this, ‘No, I’m not ready because I have a lot of things to do.’
So, what happens when you go to sleep every night?
Are you not leaving everything such as your dear ones, the objects you are attached to and all the unfulfilled duties?
Are you not detaching yourself from everything, even your physical body?
You do not notice it just because you are used to it. In fact, when sleep comes, your eyes become very heavy and start closing on their own. You feel so blissful that you want to leave everything and go to bed.
So, here how can you give priority to your blissful state which is sleep?
Why don’t you ignore sleep every night and go on being along with those with whom you are attached to?
Just ponder on this.
If you can do this in sleep, then why not while you are awake?
You can do it but you do not want to and this is because you are so attached with the Ego. As soon as you are awake, after some minutes the Ego grabs you and let you drown in the Thought System. You are not free. You are either busy with your duties, or with your thoughts or emotions.
You will be freed only when you are busy with your duties only. Then only, you will be performing them peacefully and blissfully.
So, never say that you cannot do it. You can try and after trials only that you can be successful.
