5 ways to practise attachment with detachment in your relationship with others

The other day somebody sent me an article written by a mother of two grown-up children, now married and how by practicing detachment in her attachment towards them, she was able not only to let go off them but at the same time give them her complete unconditional love.

The art of managing human #emotions: 5 things that work for me!

Last year as I was flying Business Class from Los Angeles to Chicago quite enjoying the experience of luxury travel sipping coffee from fine China and staring at the breathtaking cloud formations outside, I was suddenly startled to hear a fellow passenger get into an argument with the flight steward. Apparently she had some food allergies and the flight attendants could not cater to her special food needs despite the fact that she was flying business class.

Removing the #chollacactus from my #consciousness: 8 things I learnt!

In an idol moment, I had picked up a copy of Scientific Healing Affirmations by Paramahansa Yogananda, and on randomly opening the book, these words of Yogananda stared at me, perfectly addressing the need of the hour and showing me the way ahead.
