Affectionate Detachment

A cyberspace devotee from Luxemborg wants Gurudeva to give him some practical examples of affectionate detachment and how it can help him in his daily life. Gurudeva says many people are attached to their body, emotions, intellect and past but if you realize that you have a body and it is yours then you simultaneously realize that you are not your body. Therefore be affectionately detached from your body and live in it.

When we restrain our tendencies to deceive, to lie and break promises, our external life is uncomplicated, as is our subconscious mind. Honesty is the foundation of truth. It is ecologically, psychologically purifying.
