Non-attachment. Does it have to be cold and distant?
The practice of non-attachment is seen as a worthy goal in spiritual development. To be so grounded and internally present that nothing moves you.
Non-dual practitioners simply observe that nothing that is experienced is 'I', not the pain, not the thoughts, not the suffering. The highest level of non-attachment is often seen as the realisation that none of the sensory phenomena are part of you.
However, many who reach this realisation seem to become detached from the world, like spiritual zombies, it's as though they are not here. Is this really the highest achievement in self-enquiry?
Well, maybe not. Experienced Buddhist teacher and yogi Michael Stone shares and alternative view and embodiment of non-attachment.
