Understanding of the nature of Attachment and Detachment, and the ability to relinquish the first and to favor the second, may be the single most important key to spiritual enlightenment and evolution. Attachment is the factor that holds the seeker in the World; Detachment releases us. Attachment locks us into an appreciation of Form; Detachment frees us to seek the Essence. Attachment holds open the door for Emotionalism; Detachment keeps emotionalism at bay.
Simply put, then, why is Detachment so valued? Detachment is the method by which the spiritual Seeker releases herself from the World, from apparent reality, from Form….and in that Act of Release she states to the World, to herself, and to the Infinite Universe, I am free of Form, I am free to Create, I am at One with the Universe, and I eschew the outward illusions of reality.
Attachment specifies the need for certain Forms to be made manifest; Detachment states, **I need only the Essence, the Form is immaterial.** Attachment says, **I want it this way and only this way**; not so Detachment, which specifies only the Essence desired to be manifested, never the ways in which that Essence ought to appear. Attachment seeks Acquisition; Detachment seeks and receives Freedom, through release of demands.
The Seeker who remains in thrall to Attachment…will not see Spiritual Evolution made manifest quickly, if indeed at all! The Seeker who embraces the Concepts of Detachment, however, will quietly observe all Manifestation coming to pass…rapidly and in perfection of Form.
