***Be affectionately detached from all.
What does this quote essentially mean?
I have been asked this question over and over again.
…This has been my mantra for a few years now, however, I reinforce it at the beginning of every new year.
***Sharing in a few lines what it means to me, hope it helps you all.
A few incidents in my life made me bitter temporarily, but the guidance from spiritually rich teachers made me understand the value of relationships.
***I started following Dandapani on social media whose guru coined this quote. Being affectionately detached has taught me how to interact and deal with people in life who are not uplifting and can be energy drainers.***
We all are surrounded by different personalities, the trick being how to tackle each one in a positive manner.
Learning from all and not getting attached is hard but doable.
We need to learn to invest in people who bring out the best in us.
Every human has something to offer, it is up to us what to accept and what to discard.
Please get it right; one does not have to be a recluse or be in a solitary mode to practice the art of detachment.
It merely means to be present in the world with open eyes, perform your acts, play your role gracefully, be transcendental, be zealously aloof, eventually bloom like a flower amongst the petals and thorns around.
Isolate some, nurture some but do not cling to anyone.
Keep learning and growing.
***By wisely discriminating where our energy flows, we direct it to those that uplift us and remain affectionately detached from those that drain us- Dandapani
