NanoTeaching: Non-Attachment & the Cosmic Laughter

We’re excited to introduce a new series called Nano Teachings.

The NanoTeachings are short, focused, inspiring videos that explore key principles of the spiritual life. Each NanoTeaching is selected from a Wisdom Heart Community (WHC) module.

Each month in The Wisdom Heart Community, we focus on a core principle of the spiritual life. This NanoTeaching is drawn from the teachings on Letting Go & Non-Attachment.

Eric explores the 2 Core Principles that support a deep, life-transforming spiritual life and also sings a bit of “Sitting by the Dock of the Bay.”

So, what does Non-Attachment mean to you? Please share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Love & Shanti

    Thanks for sharing these, Eric. You’re really at your best when you do them. I love that energy))))))))!
    I don’t know why more people don’t write and share their experiences on here. The moments of non-attachment that I’ve truly participated in in my life are like what you describe in the video. I would add to that they are profound moments of awareness of all the baggage just falling away and finally feeling like I belong for once, that I am exactly smack dab in the middle of the stream of being, groundless being at that, and that is exactly perfectly fine (cue laughter bubbling up). I am more me than at any other time and yet more in the flow of cosmic being, a tiny particle of it. And that’s the whole dance; stripped to one’s essentials and core which is really just a particle of the great flow. But the awareness of your presence within that Being is ginormous…as great as the cosmos itself. And that is so expansive that you just want to dance and laugh from somewhere deep inside. Those are good moments and they stay with you, although it’s impossible to be in them constantly. (Well, maybe some people can. Meditation can bring this smile on too). It is the essence of Thich Nhat Hanh’s saying: “I am home. I am alive. In the here, and in the now. I am solid. I am free. In the ultimate I dwell.” _()_ metta

    I love this! When I was little, I would have loved to have our family cat sit on my lap. But when I held on he wanted to go. Over time I’ve learned to let go more. Now I have a cat that wants to sit on my lap quite often, especially when I’m relaxed and unattached.

    Hi, Shelley! Thank you for your words. It’s amazing how when we learn to let go but still open to allow the gifts of the universe and simply notice, love comes from all directions! Stay tuned for the next NanoTeaching coming Wednesday.

    Eric, You have explained the joyful aspect and the happiness piece that giggles, and laughs from a cosmic beingness, not at anyone, not even laughing at ourselves, but the bliss of being where you describe this, it’s enchanting.
