Detached means detached from the consciousness of the body, that I’m the body, I am so-and-so, detached from the relatives of the body that these are mother of the body, Father of the body, friends, relatives, objects of the body, that this is my house, my car etc., detached from all of these and having the awareness that whatever I have, body , mind, wealth, relatives connections, everything belongs to ShivBaba.
There is soul conscious love that is not only to the relatives of the body, but a feeling that the whole world is our family. Bodily love is love for ones own body, bodies of others and the pleasures that come out of the body. Since we all have bodies we have thoughts about the body, so our love is always selfish to some extend.
We believe there is only one source of selfless love – the soul who is the supreme Father and never has his own body. He is detached soul. Attachment comes when the soul is in the body, but no matter this soul can be in the body it is still detached. It means he does not have partiality or familiarity with some souls. Super sensual love. Loving means in unlimited way, unconditionally. Not loving today and hateful tomorrow, or loving because and non loving because, because can love depend on mood or external things. It comes out of certain approach. So it is said that he is an ocean of love and will remain like this till the end.
Detachment means to consider oneself a soul and develop brotherly love with others and there is no need to hurt people in this. We are thought to not hurt people, but also not to be hurt by people. It is only the bodyconciousness or some expectation that result in sorrow for us. We are indeed being transformed in happy idiots that think that whatever happens is good, whatever happened is also good and whatever will happen will be even better.
Its different to what we are used, a new different world where there will not be any kind of sorrow and any kind of violence. It hard to belive now, but we have to bring it into practical.
We don’t have concern because we believe in the theory of the cycle that scenes change and now we know that past will become present again. Whatever we were we’ll become once again the same. In this drama we have relationships with certain souls they come and go. Detached means to develop an attitude of belonging to each soul, not just to few, and not to cut relationships with some. We like to cut, if we don’t like someone and like him to change or disappear. We believe this is a perfect play and everyone has his own part and we belong eternally to everyone end everyone belongs to us. Nothing can be added or taken away from this play. We can only change ourselves, our attitude. We don’t have the power or right to control others, even through our expectations from them, because we desire benefit, we believe we will get whatever we like to have only from one supreme Father and no one else. Only from one source and we believe benefit for others also is with him and not with us.
It is also detached to think about the self and not to look at others. We often tend to look at others to find faults or compare with them. To be introspective, introverted is not bad. Maybe there is no need to love each and every soul individually. Maybe this love is not possible, but when we face others we can approach them with equal vision, can we have higher vision for some and lower for some. Do we have the right to judge this way. But we can love only one, single soul, the seed in which the whole world is contained. It is said that there is no need to water each and every leaf (soul) separately. If we give the water of love to the seed then it reaches all the leaves through the tree.
Detached is also to be detached from the whole world means to know, accept and live as if this world is going to end, that this can be my final moment, that a new world is arriving.
Detached is also not to chase temporary benefit like name and fame and success and having the consciousness that success is my birthright it will come to me, it will chase me like a shadow, it is not that I will chase it. Victory is my birthright it is a garland around my neck. That whatever is received easily is like milk, whatever we receive through asking is like water and whatever we grab is like blood. Also not walking after others.
It is also to sit in one position and to not like to go down. To rest a little bit in the mind. To experience silence.
It is also to be independent and uninfluenced, to maintain self respect.
It means the stage of the mind and intellect we are in whilst we live in the world. Detached mind and intellect. Incorporeal stage, like the stage one can see on the face of the pictures of Jesus, or Buddha, that it is as if they are not here in this world with the mind and intellect, as if they are here only physically as if they are from another world, somewhere away, very far away above the clouds and the sky and the moon and the sun and the stars. As if they don’t belong here as if they are just guests here for a little time, as if they have come only to give something and not to take anything, as if they don’t have any worldly desires.
Regarding the purity of food, that some say why don’t you eat from whatever I have cooked am I dirty, then we believe we should all eat from one and the same pot. If we believe that whatever we have food etc belongs to ShivBaba then this food becomes pure. Since ShivBaba is just a soul then he is only concerned to change our mind, he will not take our food. We sacrifice everything to him so that we become free from thinking about these, not because he needs these. We just hand our burdens to him since he cannot be burdened it is not a problem for him. It is we who become burdened with everything.
Detached is also to be tired and to know why, to know that the soul has passed through many hurdles and has lost its power and now has to go back home and now it is a time for rest
It is also detached to make attempt to make other equal to yourself, to have faith more in the power of the mind, that everything can be achieved with the power of thoughts, more than through words and actions..
Detached is also to know that no one belongs to me and I don’t belong to anyone except I belong to one and he belongs to me. no one else.
