Wear Life Loosely

The Law of Detachment says that in order to acquire anything in the physical universe, you have to relinquish your attachment to it.
~ Deepak Chopra, The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success


If we simply saw life as a loose garment, something we drape around ourselves but are not firmly attached to, we would find it easier to live.  I feel more comfortable living this way, as if life were something I could easily slip out of at any moment.  It seems to help me focus on the important things instead of the details that mean little.

How do you want to spend your life, getting all dressed up or just wrapping yourself loosely in a comfortable garment?  I don’t want to waste time getting ready.  I want to be free to move and live and enjoy life.  I find that everything I need comes to me when I live with this sense of detachment.

Make sure you have a comfortable fit when you dress for life.
