"I have everything, yet have nothing;
and although I possess nothing,
still of nothing am I in want."
Publius Terentius Afer

True freedom.
 -- E Archer, NYC     
    Yes Archer indeed! the realization of nothing. As there has been little response to this quote I feel it my duty to provide a little credence in its honor: Detachment and non-attachment is not some kind of fancy new trend, the practice of non-attachment has been around for thousands of years – they new the importance of it then and today the same principles still apply. Simply, it means NOT TO CLING, not to hold onto things or thoughts, but to let your mind empty itself to allow room for your imagination and creative expression – to be closer to your Self, your spirit, and others. Above all, it allows your Self calmness and to mingle with the Universe and eternity. So, now that’s all said and done, try it out, just sit back, concentrate, and start kicking out those circling thoughts, greed, aggression, anger, hate, and ego – there’s ton’s of it there, just start getting rid of it, start the process of detachment. Suddenly the world will start to feel fresh, light and exciting again, and this new day, this moment, will be full of adventure.
