Affectionate Detachment

A cyberspace devotee from Luxemborg wants Gurudeva to give him some practical examples of affectionate detachment and how it can help him in his daily life. Gurudeva says many people are attached to their body, emotions, intellect and past but if you realize that you have a body and it is yours then you simultaneously realize that you are not your body. Therefore be affectionately detached from your body and live in it.

The uninitiated might ask: "What is it like to be in the clear white light?" The young aspirant may reply, "It is as simple as sitting in a darkened room, closing the eyes in deep concentration and finding the entire inside of the cranium turning into light."
