Detachment



“Detachment is something we know about in the spiritual life. It doesn’t mean not to get involved; it means to not let outer circumstances throw off your inner balance.”

—Harold Klemp, The Art of Spiritual Dreaming, Pg. 83



“Detached means seeing the play of life—crying when we must, laughing when we can—but at all times looking at life from the viewpoint of Soul, knowing that even this shall pass away.”

—Harold Klemp, How to Find God, Mahanta Transcripts, Book 2, Chap. 17



“The razor’s edge is one’s calm detachment from the things of this world; yet he may enjoy them as a blessing of life, for past karma has brought them for his experience. There is no virtue in suffering, poverty, or martyrdom, unless the individual needs those experiences for the purification of Soul.”

—Harold Klemp, The Living Word, Book 1, Chap. 32
