I question this. Detachment is necessary at times and detachment from the material possessions and pursuits is probably a good thing to strive for but detachment from people and interaction is not what is sought. Things of the world are really not important. We know that to be true. Loosing those things which weigh us down. Obsessing over. Cut them loose. Release them.
Thinking this morning on what I owe. What do I owe? What have I given back for all the love, compassion, care, friendship that I have been given. What do I owe to each one who has touched my life? What can I do not repay that which has been freely given unto me?

anticipating the future, while missing life in the present.
Be a person who dissolves into the present...Yeh!
Be like a boat that flows in time and space... Yeh! - Tishan
It is so very easy to carry the past. To hold onto, to wrap ourselves in like an old itchy moth eaten wool blanket that at times brings great comfort and at other times rubs and itches and is heavy filled with the water of our tears.
Looking forward and preparing we get caught up in the possibility of what might be that we forget to experience the right now and what is. Granted we must be aware of our actions and the impact they may have upon us and others in the future as we do not want to create more things to fret over once it is past. In looking solely to the future we again miss the moment. Learning how to walk. How far ahead do you look when you walk? Do you look only at your feet to make sure each step is firmly planted onto the ground?
In the moment. Following the stream of the universe again today. Right there. Nothing else. Everything else. All of time past and future wrapped into the present moment. Flow. Be like sugar in a cup of warm coffee. Dissolve and spread the sweet flavor throughout the drink. Or lump up at the bottom of the cup and save the last drink to be pure sweetness.

We see just bits I suppose. We rarely see the whole. The big picture. Even seeing the big picture we usually only see bits and pieces of the whole. Seeing wide our focus is small and in seeing the detail we lose focus on the whole. Difficult balance once again.
Reminds me of all the talk of global warming. The Oscar for Al Gore brought the talk into the foreground again. We see bits and pieces of this thing. It exists, it does not exist. It is man made, it is natural. We are warming, we are cooling. I have no answers. Everyone is right just as everyone is wrong. There are no experts, everyone is an expert. In the end we see what we want to see, we believe what we want to believe.
I need my eyes of perception cleaned about the same way I need to clean the front windshield of the truck. It is hazy and streaky and when the sun hits it just right I can not see a thing.
