The Law of Detachment

The Law of Detachment

The word “universe” means one song. Your every intention or heart’s desire is like a melody in nature’s symphony; all you have to do is sing your song. A Rumi poem says, “I want to sing like birds sing, not worrying who listens or what they think.” If you can sing your song with that attitude, you are participating in the Law of Detachment, and nothing will be able to stop the force of your intentions.

• Practice detached involvement. Stay alert to the opportunity within every problem by letting go of your idea of how things should be.

• Accept uncertainty as an essential part of your experience. In your willingness to accept uncertainty, solutions will spontaneously appear.

• Remain open to all possibilities and enjoy every moment in the journey of your life—all the fun, mystery, and magic in the field of pure potentiality.

So true. Christians say, "Let go and let God'. There is also the Abraham Hicks' slant on it when it is said, "Give it to the manager". So very true. Thank you.

I know I get so wrapped up in the problem. A bit of detachment sounds like wise advice.

Learning to let go of the past cause you don't live there anymore. Each day is the New You from this day forward.
