Here is something I heard recently. Detachment is forgiveness. Yes, I did mention this on this blog the very day I heard it. I was baffled then. I am still baffled. Maybe somebody out there can help out, tell me how the two (detachment and forgiveness) equate.
Just what is this detachment anyway. The subtitle of this blog reads "A fusion of fears- mythical and current". Detachment is something I encounter often enough in the mythical part of my life. As the opposite of attachment, although Synonym.com is apologetic about the antonym of attachment or detachment, that would seem to imply a lack of involvment in the events that intrude into your life. I don't mean to say that one could rise above the involvement. No way. But detachment is something a true loner knows inside out.
But forgiveness. What is that. What do you forgive. Debts? Hurts? Cruelty.
Come on. I haven't ever seen anyone yet who has truly forgiven anything. Maybe such saints do exist somewhere.
Ultimate detachment is a condition where hurts and pain and losses never reach. What does forgiveness mean in that situation.
