The Elements Of Detachment

detachmentLife Coach Code – In Buddhism, letting go is a state of detachment and viewed as a “non action which is an integral part of the Right Way”. If taken literally, we would have the impression that to let go means to be aloof or be disconnected with others.

But such is not how true detachment truly works. Zen Buddhist Master Thich Nhat Hanh gave a complete explanation of the true meaning of detachment.

He said that to truly let go is to love someone more than you have ever loved them before. When this love for another extends beyond your own personal expectations of gains, then non attachment takes place.

The 4 Elements Of Detachment According To Thich Nhat Hanh

1. Maitri (Benevolence and Lovingkindness)

Master Han said that Maitri is “the intention and capacity to offer joy and happiness”. It involves profound looking and listening to others in order to know what to do and what not to do to make others happy. Continue reading “The Elements Of Detachment”

Emotional Release and Detachment

detachment

Ascending Hearts – It is possible that when you hear the words Emotional Release and Detachment it causes you a feeling of coldness and selfishness.

Nothing is further from reality. The word detachment, when understood within the context of personal growth, contains a precious inner value that all must learn to develop.

Practicing detachment does not mean giving up everything that is important to us or breaking affective bonds or personal relationships with those who are part of our daily lives. “Detachment means knowing how to love, appreciate, and engage in relationships with a more balanced and healthy view, freeing yourself from the excesses that trap you.” Continue reading “Emotional Release and Detachment”

8 Steps Towards Non Attachment

attachmentDéesse Indigo – During our lives, we tend to form many attachments to various types of things. Many of us are so attached to the physical world that we become enslaved and possessed by the very things we adore.

Detachment is when someone has complete freedom from all that is seen or heard and doesn’t let any possessions take control of them. Practicing non-attachment gives us power over our emotions and feelings in relation to the attachments in our life.

Many people wonder, why does detachment matter? Why does it matter whether or not we’re attached to something? The answer is simple, if we’re not careful our attachment can lead to tragedy and heartbreak when change takes its unstoppable course. Attachment is the root cause of our suffering. Non-attachment is the ultimate form of self-mastery.

The first and most important concept when trying to incorporate non-attachment into your life, is consciously acknowledging that everything that’s manifested in our physical world is temporary, not forever.

When you notice your attachment to anyone or to anything, ask yourself the following questions: “Why do I really desire this? What permanent advantage would I gain by possessing this? How would this possession help me towards greater knowledge and freedom?” Over and over again, the answers to these questions show us that the desired thing is useless in the long term and also may be potentially harmful by driving us into ignorance and bondage. Sometimes we may become aware that the things we desire, is something simply to fulfill a mere restlessness in the mind.

The mental state of non-attachment may come slowly, but even the earliest stages of practice are rewarded by a sense of peace and freedom. Guaranteed success will come from being consistent with this spiritual discipline.

Practice Non-Attachment in 8 Steps

1. Ask yourself what realistic permanent advantage you should gain if you possessed your desire. Continue reading “8 Steps Towards Non Attachment”

Stormy Weather On High Cosmic Seas

“. . . just observing the daily news and events is enough to make your head spin. The obvious lies, reversals, omissions and outright blather, negativity and fear we’re being bombarded with is surreal. That so few can stand back and take notice of this charade is another mind-blowing factor.” – Z Gardner

StormSkyWaterSurfBoardI don’t even need to ask who’s feeling this. We’re all experiencing turbulent vibrational times right now. It’s a very real challenge. Whatever the source, we’re going through a kind of vortex of change and disturbance that needs to be acknowledged and addressed.

I don’t know the so-called “reason” for it, but it’s there. This is confirmed by good friends and a variety of sources, but with even a cursory look at the world around us, we’re passing through some serious stuff. And it can be quite disconcerting.

I’ve said many times this was coming in previous articles, but as always, when it hits it’s another story. We can observe something inside the “washing machine” with a safe distance between the event and ourselves, but when we’re actually in it personally – man o’ man.

Symptoms and Possible Contributors

The affects in times like this include scrambled sleep cycles, a sense of tension and difficulty in concentrating, low energy and health challenges, emotional turmoil, and even degrees of confusion in our thinking processes. It really helps to look outside for influences so that we don’t lose perspective on the event we’re part of or get lost in futile introspection. Continue reading “Stormy Weather On High Cosmic Seas”

Supporting Loved Ones During Spiritual Crisis

Energetic Synthesis | August 1 2012

Dear Ascension Family,

ES Community is involved in a group trip for environmental and planet gridwork harmonization in Indonesia. For those reasons I am not able to write the August 2012 timeline updates, which will resume next month. For August, we offer Guidelines to Support Loved Ones, as so many people are undergoing spiritual crisis at this time. For support I have included three audio meditation treatments and a Parent-Child treatment in this month’s newsletter to utilize when standing in for a family member you wish to direct prayers towards. Also, please be aware this newsletter is recorded every month in podcast format, so if you would prefer listening to audio, rather than read the newsletter, go to the ES home page and click on the Podcast Button on the lower right hand side.

Blessings to your heart, Lisa

Having gone on a recent trip to clear family patterns and confront other related issues, it has brought an emphasis of what Lightworker’s undergo with the biological family and within other pertinent 3D relationships. As Lightworker’s with a degree of conscious awareness, many of us feel confused or troubled viewing behavior or situations that we encounter in the family/friend environment. Having a tremendous amount of personal experience with this specific issue, I hope to offer some tips or guidelines that may bring some comfort. It is not easy watching loved ones suffer or make destructive choices which you can see are going to yield an excruciating or painful result. Every person must live through their life experiences in order to arrive at the conclusion that the relationship to their inner self is the most important relationship. This means that on the external view, we need to be careful to not interfere or get in the way of the person’s growth lesson. This can also boomerang back towards us in a superimposition field, and that is not our role to take on other people’s responsibilities or get siphoned dry by vampiric behavior. At the same time we also comprehend these larger patterns of manipulation, mind control and lack of free will (as example with severe addiction cases caused by entity possession) at work on this planet. In our heart we desire to help and heal people whenever we are capable and when we are aligned to the highest mutual expression of all parties involved. Sounds simple in theory, however, in daily practice we all know it is not easy!

The single most important component of being effective in healing these types of relationships and their situations is NON ATTACHMENT. This can sound like quite the conundrum, as it may be construed that if you are non-attached it means you do not care or do not take action. This is not accurate! The practice of compassionate witnessing and getting skilled at non judgment, correcting your thoughts, is helpful and necessary if you are going to be effective at healing and transforming situations. You are learning to be a “Chalice of God Source”, a pure light vessel so that healing consciousness can flow through your heart and to the person totally indiscriminately. This is similar to dispensing grace or a blessing.

In the beginning stages of your Ascension clearing pathway as an INITIATE (Soul Accretion Level), you will start to notice that you are connected ancestrally to genetic “miasma” that sources directly from your Family of Origin. As you become more conscious you will experience and become aware of its direct influence on your person. It impacts everything in your life, what manifests in your reality, until you become aware of it and choose to clear and transcend its influences. You will then need to decide what you want to energetically “wear” – as everything you inherited in your family (and the human race) does not have to become a part of your self-defined identity. As you observe and take responsibility for what you are “inhabiting” (this is your fleshly body) and the current station of your life circumstances, you can participate with healing your genetic and miasmatic relationships that reside as memory in your flesh. In most cases if you pay attention to the various patterns (attitudes, ideals, emotional intelligence) in your current Bio-Family dynamic, you will know these patterns extend to other lifetimes as well as hold relevant information and clues to what you agreed to heal ( types of collective human miasma) while you incarnated on planet earth. You are here now to complete the cycle and end these patterns. When you comprehend the complexity of these arrangements and their relationships you will have a whole new level of self-love and respect for your spirit’s aspiring nature! You are truly AWESOME!
