Forget Detachment, attach. We have been told to detach ourselves from everything we have-wealth, relationship possessions- because the real cause of our unhappiness is the attachment. This is my house, she is my wife, they are my children, these are my belongings, they are my friends, those are my enemies – the list is endless. I will do this, I can do that, I will have what I want, I don't care –a lot of egocentric ideas. Centuries have gone by but we are still attached whatever we have. It only proves that it is not working. How about trying to attach ourselves to everything? Not only with our wealth, relationships and belongings but also with everything including -the rivers, oceans, trees, mountains, flowers, animals- in short, the whole universe. This way our attachment will be distributed all over the universe. Above all, we are a part of the Universe only. How can we detach ourselves from the Universe?. Everyone and everything will belong to us and thus dear to us. ‘Love thy neighbor’ will turn into ‘love thy surroundings'. It will solve many of our problems of religion and the environment. There will be no room for discrimination on the ground of caste, creed, color, and class. There will be no room for doing any harm to nature and all living beings. Start attaching yourself- it is for the living. Forget about detachment-it is for the dead.
