Through forgiveness and through release of the past, present, future, and negative emotions, we find the experience of non-attachment. Three simple steps can be taken to experience non-attachment more frequently.
The first step it to observe. Our spiritual lives are not lived in some other dimension of time and space. We remain present in the world, but we become the observers, the watchers of things as they come and go. The second key is to allow. Our job is not to stop the world from turning but to allow it to spin. We are called upon to observe what is happening and to allow things to unfold. The third key is to let go. Things might happen that we wish had not happened. We have no logical explanation, and the events seem to disrupt our beliefs in a loving deity and an ordered and fair world. Non-attachment decides to accept whatever comes and to find the good, the lessons, and the joys — and even the laughter that is always available in all situations.
Stuff happens. But, we decide how to interpret that stuff, how to relate to it, how to use it for our benefit and not our defeat, and how we interpret it for the better of all humanity. Release things, circumstances, and situations, and then accept and overcome.
