“Detachment”, is the state of that way-farer who is sitting in a skiff in the open sea but has been caught in a sea storm, who neither knows how to swim, nor has any control over the skiff.
In this dreadful spectacle of death the critical state of the tremulous being is like the living of a detached mind which is just in the plight of the drowning person.
The stage of detachment is just like the state of one lost in a dense wilderness. Who walks with sense, no doubt, but finds himself/herself still at the starting point. He/she moves about in the world like a stray being for that fellow has no hunger for any worldly achievement then where should he/she travel? how to proceed and in what direction to proceed?
— She/ he shirks worry and tensions, for she/ he cannot stay in the atmosphere of helplessness and despair.
— She/he is free from the impatience of a hot race, for she/ he cannot become a prisoner of time shortage.
“`7 years ago, during a visit to India, China Airline from Taipai to Delhi:
AMAZING LIFE With Unique Experience, Wonderful Dimension, Beautiful Realization about CREATION, as the night’s sky came alive with Electricity. Incredible night sky glowing in lightening Storm, a Scary huge thunder and lightning storm in the SKY, WOW! the loud sound of thunder. The sky came alive with electricity during a thunder and lightning storm. And after few hours, storm was gone or all sky filled with Rainbow.
Then started AHA MOMENTS
Then 2nd one:
My surprise there was some rain drops falling on the window as well, the drops forming a perfect circle on the mirror of window. The atmosphere it created was absolutely unique, as if the ancient Gods had returned, so yes, I can see how that kind of environment can lead to an awakening…
I experienced myself as something completely indescribable, utterly beyond form. This was what the Heart Sutra refers to as “Emptiness is Form, Form is Emptiness”.
