How does one begin the journey from a Life-Story that breeds stress, anxiety, pressure, and “the clutch of death,” to a Life-Story that breeds peace, freedom, Life and Light?
The ancients designed a practice just for that. It’s called “detachment.” It’s the practice of willingly laying down some attachment, some pleasure, some desire that has taken up an inordinate ranking in our values. We lay it down for the purpose of having our spiritual sight reconditioned to be able to see what we would otherwise miss… to find the Truth that affords us freedom.
Lent is traditionally a time when people practice detachment.
Have a listen.
