How do we let go of maladaptive things or people in our lives, or events that have troubled us, or perhaps memories of distant events that played out in our lives that continue to haunt us. First we must understand that we never really have anything to begin with, we think we do, but really we don't, the Indians would call this Maya, or "the illusion", the thought that we own, or, we are attached to something is nothing but an ego-centric thought and delusion. Ask yourself this question: Do I own my body?, my house?, my land? And the answer is a surprising NO, we do not own any of it, it is only on temporary loan from the banker-at-large whoever the banker may be, so the question is not detachment, but rather the illusion of attachment, that WE have or WE own, so the simple fact is that we are never truly attached, it's like we really are inside the matrix and we don't really see life as it is. Of course this is just my narrative on the subject and there are many iterations that one may be able to write of;
perhaps someone else would say:
Life is always cyclical and always moving in some repetitious cycle, snow falls, snow melts, snow falls, day rises, night comes, day rises, the seasons even operate on a cyclical-repeating notion and perhaps even the universe itself is contracting and expanding endlessly, when we look at life and realize the patterns or the programming, can we ever truly say there is detachment.
