The Law of Detachment

One of the most profound spiritual principles is the Law of Detachment.  It requires total faith in God.   It means trusting that God has a plan for you and that He knows what outcome is best.

The Law of Detachment allows us to set goals and have our dreams, desires and intentions.  It does require, however, that we remain open to God’s will and unattached to the outcome.   Remember, the possibilities are infinite and we do not always know the outcome that will be of most benefit for ourselves and others.  Trust that God does know the best outcome.  He knows what is best for us and for everyone else.

Uncertainty is the fertile ground of pure creativity and freedom.  When you step into the field of all possibilities your life becomes an exciting adventure.  As you set your goals and follow your dreams, keep a prayer in your heart that says to God…..”This,  or something better.”  You don’t need a complete road map of what you’ll be doing next because we tend to get attached to it and begin to shut out other great possibilities.

Within every problem  in your life is the seed of an opportunity.  Do not feel compelled to force a solution to the problem.  Put your attention on the uncertainty and wait for the soluton to emerge from the chaos and confusion.  Then what emerges is something far better than you could have imagined.

According to Deepak Chopra in his book, The Seven Spiritual Laws to Success;  “The search for security is an illusion.  In ancient wisdom traditions, the solution to this whole dilemma lies in the wisdom of insecurity, or the wisdom of uncertainty.  This means that the search for security is actually an attachment to the known.  And what’s the known?  The known is our past.  The known is nothing other than the prison of past conditioning.  There’s no evolution in that – absolutely none at all.  And when there is no evolution, there is stagnation, entropy, disorder, and decay.”

For now, Earlynn’s just sayin’; “Embrace the unknown and trust God to lead you to the best outcome for you and all concerned.”

About Earlynn

Earlynn is a spunky mother, grandmother and yes, even a great grandmother. I have always been drawn to things spiritual from the time I was very young. Over the years I have read, studied and prayed that God would use me to bring comfort to troubled minds. That is my purpose more than anything else, but along the way I have also lived a very happy life. I love my family....5 children, 5 inlaws, 18 grandkids and four great grandkids. I am a master cake decorator, I love gardening, I am passionate about health and nutrition. I love parties and gatherings of family and friends. I love cooking and at least twice each year I host dinner for 50. I love writing, teaching and public speaking. I love my sweetheart. We met when we were only 10 years old and will soon celebrate our 50th anniversary. Everything I do is centered on my spiritual beliefs and I know love is the answer to all of life's problems. Join me on my web site as we explore many ideas, laugh a little and love a lot.
