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.

Be free from life's attachments and don't allow any more negative attachments to occur in your life. Loosen yourself--be free. Attachments bring all sorts of complications. Freedom brings no complications at all.
