Connecting to our Essence: the Art of Detachment

Posted on Updated on

When our status, relationships, physical attributes, health, level of intelligences etc., no longer defines and limits us, we begin to master the art of separation from what’s transitory and temporal to reconnect with the part of us that is permanent. Some call this part, higher self, spiritual or divine essence amongst other things.

The people who inspire and move the world are those who have managed to find inner peace and joy despite having suffered illnesses, tragedies or handicaps that would make most of us collapse under the weight of the pain. By no longer letting external factors define their essence, these people have mastered the art of detachment from what’s unimportant, temporal, and transitory. They have learned to reconnect with their essence, with the part of themselves that is permanent. In doing so, they remind us of the importance of not letting external factors define our worth. They remind us that inner peace and joy is internally generated and independent of external factors. They remind us of our essence, of our ability to overcome adversity, transcend pain and of our duty to do so if we’re ever going to live a life in line with our higher self.

These people are of all ages, just ordinary folks that walk the street who won’t get noble prizes, medals or recognitions for their accomplishments. However they are the very definition of success in my book. If pain has become a permanent fixture in your heart, remember that you have to power to be one of them!

        So true! I know exactly what your talking about. I was wondering if that’s also a natural stage of life you reach as you grow older and wiser.

        It can and should be…however some children have mastered the art of detachment and are a source of inspiration for the world while some older adults haven’t yet reached that point.

        Thank for the comment Jeanne!
