This is an attitude of withdrawal of emotional entanglement in worldly affairs.  It leads to serenity and peace of mind.  It is supported by refusing the emotional seduction of other people’s upsets and problems.  It also involves a willingness to allow the world and its affairs to work out its own problems and destiny.  Reactive involvement and intervention in the world can be better left to people who have a different calling.  A ‘good person’ is one thing; enlightenment is another.  One is responsible for the effort and not the result, which is up to God and the universe.

Nonattachment is not the same as indifference, withdrawal, or detachment.  Misunderstanding that the development of detachment is required often ends up as flatness or apathy.  In contrast, nonattachment allows full participation in life without trying to control outcomes.

  1. Mrs. Hawkins, you and your Team extracted what seems to be the most perfect quote during the conflict in Ukraine. Thank you!

  2. Thank you. I have just discovered DH through a comment someone had left about DH on a video talk by Rupert Spira. I am sure they both would have had a beautiful meaning-full meeting. Thank you for this blog and messages. I hope I can meet you in a virtual meeting soon. I am now one more sharing this knowledge of consciousness. Blessings to all.
