Detachment and Connection
Question:

How do I distance myself from the opinions of others while still feeling a connection to them? Is this a case of emotional distance versus spiritual distance? I can't go on being so affected by what those around me say and do... Can you be detached and connected at the same time?


Response:

Yes, you can be detached from the opinions of others while connected to their spiritual essence or soul. It’s even possible to feel and emotional bond or loving connection to another while remaining unattached to their comments or judgments, but that requires an even greater connection to your inner spiritual core. When you feel hurt by others opinions, remind yourself that it is not you they are really seeing, but a projection of their own unresolved psychological issues. And also, that it is not your true spiritual self that feels hurt, but rather it is your conditioned self or personality that feels injured. Your higher self knows its true value and is always unaffected by outside comments.

Love,
Deepak
