Detach from the Outcome

by DW Green — August 3, 2017

Be your true self

Attachment is one of those awareness things. If your not aware of being attached to something, attachment just happens. But when you become aware that you’re attached to something, you can choose to remain attached or you can choose to detach yourself from it. Being attached to outcomes is particularly problematic. Why? Because you can’t control outcomes. One is responsible for the intention and effort but not the result, which is dependent on many other conditions and factors that are nonpersonal.

It’s common to attach yourself to outcomes in an automatic and seemingly unconscious way. Notice where in life you are attached to the way something “should” be, whether that’s with people, circumstances, or yourself. By noticing when (not if) you are attached, you can consciously choose to detach, which frees you to:

  • Be your true self
  • Say what you truly feel
  • Allow others to be themselves

Detachment is freedom. This freedom is the “not knowing” or the field of uncertainty marked by:

  • Magic
  • Mystery
  • Adventure

It’s human nature to want to know how things will turn out. But, if you already know the ending, that’s no fun. Let go, detach, and enjoy the flow. Be surprised by what the Universe has in store, and delight in something even better than you could have imagined for yourself.
