In detachment lies the wisdom of uncertainty… in the wisdom of uncertainty lies the freedom from our past, from the known, which is the prison of past conditioning. And in our willingness to step into the unknown, the field of all posibilities, we surrender ourselves to the creative mind that orchestrates the dance of the universe. — Deepak Chopra
As the leaves continue to fall, I am reminded of Chopra’s Law of Detachment. The trees surrender to change with such effortless ease. They move through each season without longing for the past.
In detachment, we allow the universe free range to shape our realities for the highest good of all concerned. When we are attached to a particular outcome, feelings of failure might arise if we do not get what we want. My mother used to say to me, “God gives you what you need, not what you want.”
It took me a while to appreciate the meaning of my mother’s words. Even today I have my doubts. Why is what I need different from what I want?
The cure for me is following the passion in my heart. I do what I love and leave it up to the universe to work out the rest. I love to write … so I write. I love to dance … so I dance. I love to love … so I love.
