Mention the word detachment in any kind of spiritual or metaphysical sense and for many, images of monks, Eastern renunciates, or too-cool-for-school new-agers come to mind. So what does this word detachment really mean?
In terms of the law-of-attraction it means freedom from all concerns and it can actually offer hope. And more than hope it is the reminder of a promise that everything you’ve ever desired is already so. It’s already yours. How could this be true?
The construction of your world, your universe and the universe at large may be different that you’ve been trained to believe. The awareness of a possibly more accurate understanding of the nature of reality and how it manifests may very well explain why detachment is logical – and why it may be in our best interest to practice detachment whenever possible.
In the early 1980’s physicist Alain Aspect discovered that subatomic particles could communicate with each other instantaneously, no matter their distance apart. This flew in the face of Einstein’s theory that nothing can move or do anything faster than the speed of light.
Because of Aspect’s findings, another physicist, David Bohm, asserted that though much in reality appeared to be solid, it may not be. And that there may be no such thing as objective reality. Objective reality – meaning that which maintains a state of truth whether one believes it or not. If we add that to believing that each of us is a separate individual and that everything in existence also maintains a separateness from all other things we are then believing in an objective reality.
So why would Bohm say this? Because, first, he understood the basic nature of a simple hologram.
A man-made hologram is a 3-dimensional photograph created with the aid of a laser. If we wanted to make a hologram of a strawberry it would first be flooded in the beam of laser light #1. Then the light of laser beam # 2 is bounced off of the reflected light of laser beam # 1. This results in an interference pattern (think, of dropping two identical pebbles in a pond and imagine where their concentric water circles meet midway) and this interference pattern is what is photographed.
At this stage the film may not look like much. But as soon as soon as another laser beam is passed through it a 3-dimensional image of the strawberry becomes evident. If the film is cut in half and a laser passed through it again, an image of the original strawberry, in 3-D will still appear. Cut these pieces in half and they will continue, with the aid of a laser beam, to present a smaller but intact 3-dimensional images of the original strawberry. This is the difference between a common photograph and a holographic one. The hologram contains all the information of the whole within all of it’s parts.
David Bohm believed that subatomic particles were not mysteriously communicating, even at what appeared to be great distances. But rather that no matter what it looked like, they were not really separate at all. That their separateness was in actuality some great illusion. That no subatomic particle (of which all things and humans are made) is individual, existing on its own – but rather is a part of or expansion of something much larger. And that the only reason we are unable to see or understand this easily is because of our ‘position’ or perspective related the the whole or greater something.
Reality, may in fact, be some kind of super or meta-hologram. If this is true our universe could very well contain some very surprising qualities. Even the notions of location, time and space would have to be reconsidered. As well as the infiniteness of all possibilities of reality. Past, future and in the Now. Which would all, ultimately be the same moment – both as ‘realities’ and ‘potentials.’
If our meta-universe is a multidimensional, multi-frequency grid which has brought forth everything in existence that ever has been, or or ever will be it could be seen or experienced as Infinite Be-ing.
If we, as human-beings are in relationship with the Infinite Be-ing of All That Is how could we consciously interact with it?
Answer: via our thoughts.
And so this brings us back to the law-of-attraction and detachment.
Considering the model of the holographic universe as infinite, and that Mind is how we interact with it, it then being within us projecting ‘outward,’ then everything we could ever want already exists. Not as a spiritual cliche, but literally. All potential versions of your experience/experiences other than the one you are currently experiencing already exist. So how do we experience what we do want if we’re not enjoying what we see? Via our vibrational frequency or our activty of Mind. Because it’s not about where or when it exists but rather on which vibrational frequency it lives, so to say. We literally have to line up our frequency with that which we want to deliberately experience and we will resonate or oscillate into the experience. Like fine tuning the dial to a particular radio station. And knowing that what you want already exists for you, whether it is a condition, an experience or thing, does it make much sense to still be in a wanting place when you now know it is already so? It’s kind of like knowing that you are in Rome and your favorite car is in the garage next to the home you own in London. How do you then receive it? What are the things you need to do to experience being in London so you can easily retrieve you car? This favorite car you already own? Likely you won’t stress about not having the car. Because you know it’s already yours. So all you have to do is get into alignment, be in alignment with being in London, in your car .
We can relieve ourselves of the wanting and just focus on the having by aligning ourselves with anything that matches the vibration of it for us in thought, feeling and/or emotion. Activating any of the senses in imagination, really, will do. Or also, inspired action. And any ‘law of attraction’ exercises or practices that do this for you are exactly the ‘right’ ones.
