Attachment is the great fabricator of illusions;
reality can be attained only by someone who is detached.
– Simone Weil
One of the profoundest laws of spiritual psychology is: you see what you are, and you are what you see. The observer cannot help conditioning what he or she observes.
Those who cannot love see a world where love has little place. Those who live to enlarge their love, by contrast, see a world of hope: a world of men and women who, despite their failings, are capable of love in the core of goodness in their hearts.
To see life from this lofty vantage, we need detachment, not from others but from ourselves. Source: http://www.easwaran.org
