True non-attachment is an intimacy with life…

Non-attachment is often confused as disassociation…which it is not at all…non-attachment is not clinging to fixed or rigid ideas – and dropping into the truths of the world…

“Intimacy is the byproduct of giving up fixed views of the way things are. fixed and rigid ideas are really the enemy of intimacy…it’s really what shuts down relationships. What we need is a way to let go and drop in to the truth of how things are…both what’s beautiful and what’s devistating….opening up to the fact that this world is stunningly beautiful and also a total catastrophy….and how to hold both….we need to reimagine this idea of non-attachment as a practice of not clinging to fixed ideas so we can be engaged with the world.”
