Aparigraha The Art of Non-Attachment

The concept of non-attachment or non-grasping is common in mindfulness communities. Learning to let go of expectations can be challenging and confusing, but what is more important than the concept itself is the understanding of why.

Releasing our attachment to circumstances is an act of developing unconditional trust; trust that there is more good, more abundance, more love and joy available to us. Trust that things will flow and align in a perfect order beyond our understanding. Trust that we have everything we could ever need already within us... everything else is just bonus.

Practicing non-attachment is also a practice of being in the present moment. Learning to enjoy what we are having, doing, or experiencing right now without worrying what will happen next is a pathway to living in the Now. 

What is something in your life that you are not fully enjoying because you are afraid it will go away? Can you practice releasing the outcome, and simply being in the appreciation of the present experience? How much more joy opens up to you when you release fears and worries of the outcome?

MANTRA: I do not need to hold on to anything because I know there is always more good coming. I am free to be in this moment fully and completely.
