“Communing with God is communing with our own hearts, our own best selves, not with something foreign and accidental. Saints and devotees have gone into the wilderness to find God; of course they took God with them, and the silence and detachment enabled them to hear the still, small voice of their own souls, as one hears the ticking of his own watch in the stillness of the night.”

― John Burroughs, Harvest of a Quiet Eye: The Natural World of John Burroughs

Here’s why detachment can be a significant approach to daily living – it gives us a chance to re-access our God-given ability to refuel, giving our minds & our bodies an opportunity to rest. Rest in essential in creativity, in problem solving and overall benefits the body’s recovery when under stress. More on the benefits of detachment {here}

Whenever I am working on a project, writing an article, or creating a piece of art…I find it needful to detach. This means that I pull back and empty my mind of all contents of concern, I literally take a mind, body, spirit wellness break. This assists me in the birthing of other components that can be added to the project.

Detachment in this sense of the word, is not the letting go a thing as if one has lost interest or involvement – rather, it opens the flood gate of inner resources. At other times, detachment is rest, release & peace of mind.

Detachment allows for the formation of new thoughts and ideas, equipping us to better serve on a particular project or some other issue of concern more effectively. More quotes on detachment.
