Attachment Vs. Detachment
I am ATTACHED to my body. I am what I am. I want all the materialistic things on this earth. I want materialistic prosperity thus, I work hard for a living. I feed my body so that I can work diligently and get the money. At the end of the day, I have a status in the society. I like to be honored for what I have done and if I do not attain my goals, I am very very disappointed. I cannot sleep well. I get hyper-tension. I visit my doctor frequently since now, I have a list of medicines to eat for my diseased body. My body is diseased but, I keep working hard until my goals are achieved and I am respected for what I have done.
I am DETACHED from my body. I have no feelings. I am born in this world where nothing is free. Thus, I work to earn money. I eat three meals a day to give me energy. I work during the day but towards the end of the day, I rest in peace and joy with no attachments of getting honored or respected for what I have done. I am happy with my life. I laugh with my whole heart and I can feel the joy inside me. I am diseased FREE. This something inside me is full of joy and full of life. It's the soul. I can feel it now. It is my BEST friend. Since I am detached to my body and my feelings. I do not worry about what the world is doing or achieving. I have the basic necessities and I work to get a pay-check. This money helps my family. I get the dough for my family during the day. Evenings, I rest like a monk. I give my services to people with no obligation. That makes my soul at peace. I am the happiest soul on this planet.
Good luck my fellow men!!
