Enjoy the experience of being a physical being.
Detachment is worlds away from apathy. It allows us to explore friendships, experience the joy of work, study new belief systems, learn from other cultures, feel the thrill of a roller coaster, enjoy great food and music or be one with nature.
Sometimes in the midst of our practice, we often create stress by resisting the changes that life brings. Instead of a free-flow of experience, we attach to certain ideas of how life is supposed to unfold and lose the joy of adventure.
Everything ebbs and flows. Happiness within the human experience comes from releasing our attachment to things, people, goals or desires. As we learn to allow the present moment to unfold without resistance, we come to discover that life does not have to be a struggle.
There is nothing wrong with having preferences; however, do not choose to suffer when things don’t unfold in the way you expect. Instead, seek only the fullness of experience. Continue to expand your outlook as a spiritual explorer. There is always something new to discover.
