| | Week 3 Day 5
I received support and confirmation from two people about the work yesterday. Then this morning I experienced something during meditation that was yet another boost - up yet another level.
Detachment, detachment, detachment
came through like a mantra.
the post-traumatic paralysis that I lived with for some years now was glowing like some neon in black-light.
Detachment and self-observation can go hand in hand.
observing the mind
observing the doer v the being
creates just enough space between the traumatic response and the detached.
Practicing the presence
for me today is being aware, returning to the awareness of my state of attachment (or non-attachment) and using the 4 steps to return to detachment. Detachment is present in the now.
The language for this sounds so much like mumbo-jumbo but it merely points at what is being done on another plane, matching what goes on on this material, physic world to the spiritual realm. Language can only point to it rather than be fully descriptive.
