"Unleashing Freedom: Embracing Detachment and Finding the Meaning of Life"

“Actions do not cling to me because I am not attached to their results. Those who understand this and practice it live in freedom.”

Its definition:-

In the above statement "me" actually refers to a god. We humans have a very bad habit that we work for one day and expect to eat its fruit daily. For example, if we exercised for one day in a week while sleeping in a bed for rest of the days doesn't make our body fit. As exercise should be practiced daily in order to remain healthy, humans must pray god on daily basis to be freed from pain and suffering. We also have a bad habit that we work little but expect too much. This expectation or fruits of your deeds is painful if you haven't put a lot of effort. You should understand that Writing an exam is completely in your hand but giving better marks is not. So, beleive in your action but expect too much from it. Then, you won't get attached to  its results and your mind will be free from suffering. So, lets read a story about Michael who used to have similar kind of thinking but it got changed later.


A man named Michael used to live in the bustling city of New York. He found himself caught in the chaotic whirlwind of life. He was an average Joe. He was working a nine-to-five job. He struggled to find meaning in his daily routine. Life felt like a sad, monotonous cycle, and he yearned for something more.

One day, while browsing through a bookstore, Michael stumbled upon a self-help book. It titled "Actions do not cling to me because I am not attached to their results. Those who understand this and practice it live in freedom." Intrigued by the title, he decided to give it a read. He hoped it would shed some light on the meaning of life.

As he delved into the book, Michael discovered the concept of detachment. He found the profound impact it could have on one's perspective. The author emphasized the importance of living in the present moment. He found about not being attached to the outcomes of our actions. It was a revelation to Michael—a key to breaking free from the chains of his sad, uninspiring existence.

Michael was inspired by the book. He embarked on a journey to change his way of life. He decided to embrace the philosophy. It was about,"live it up" and also live life to the fullest. No longer would he be a mere spectator in his own existence. He would become the protagonist in the life of the party.

Michael started by focusing on his work-life balance. He realized that his job had consumed his entire being. It  was leaving little room for personal fulfillment. With a newfound sense of self-discipline, he carved out time for hobbies.  He used it for socializing, revitalizing his social life. Slow living became his mantra as he learned to savor each moment. He found joy in the little things that had previously passed him by.

His transformation didn't stop there. Michael discovered the importance of self-care and nurtured his home life. He strengthened his relationships and cherishing the love of his life. He even fostered a sense of contentment within himself.

As he continued to live his best life, Michael found that his actions no longer clung to him. He had let go of the need for validation. It embraced the freedom that detachment brought. He realized that it was not the results that defined him. It was the process—the journey—that mattered most.

The once sad life he led transformed into a life of purpose and fulfillment. Michael became an inspiration to others. He radiated a positive energy that touched everyone he encountered. People admired his zest for life. They were inspired by his ability to live in the moment, and his unwavering commitment to his own happiness.

His story spread far and wide. It reached individuals from all walks of life. From the low life to the high life, people were inspired by him. They also wanted to break free. It was from the shackles that held them back. They embraced the concept of detachment. They understand that the true meaning of life lay not in the destination but in the journey itself.

Michael's story became a lifeline for those seeking change. They realized that they too could rewrite their own life stories. The ripple effect of his transformation spread like wildfire. It ignited a movement of individuals. Those individuals who refused to settle for anything less than a life lived on their own terms.

In the end, Michael understood that the meaning of life was not a fixed concept. It was something each person had to discover for themselves. It was discovered through detachment, self-discipline, and embracing the present moment. He had found his own path of fulfillment. And in doing so, he had given others the courage. That helped them to embark on their own journeys. The journeys of self-discovery and liberation.

In this circle of life actions no longer clung to Michael. He had truly come to life.  He looked back on his journey and he realized that it wasn't about reaching a destination. It was about embracing the beauty of the ever-changing, unpredictable ride.

It was about living, not just existing. It was also about embracing the vast possibilities that each day held for.  In the end, Michael had unlocked the true meaning of life. It was to create his own extraordinary story in the great tapestry of existence.

My Thinking

Rousseau once said that, "Man is born free and everywhere he is in chains." It means that when we are born we do not have any problems in our life. But as the time passed by, our responsibilities increases along with our mental tension. Although we are not physically held by chains but due to the different rules and limitations we are mentally held by some force. The only way to get out from this world of Illusion and suffering is by getting knowledge. In order to acquire knowledge our mind must be healthy and empty. For that I recommend you to practice meditation at least one hour a day. Meditation itself do not give us knowledge but prepare our brain to get and store lot of knowledge. It helps to fight against mental depression those. Thank you
