  6. “I don’t mind what happens. That is the essence of inner freedom.
    It is a timeless spiritual truth: release attachment to outcomes,
    deep inside yourself, you’ll feel good no matter what.” ~ Jiddu Krishnamurti
  7. “They say you don’t get over someone until you find someone or something better. As humans, we don’t deal well with emptiness. Any empty space must be filled. Immediately. The pain of emptiness is too strong. It compels the victim to fill that place. A single moment with that empty spot causes excruciating pain. That’s why we run from distraction to distraction and from attachment to attachment.” ~ Yasmin Mogahed
  8. “Attachment is the great fabricator of illusions; reality can be attained only by someone who is detached.” ~ Simone Weil

  9. “Pray to God that your attachment to such transitory things as wealth, name, and creature comforts may become less and less every day.” ~ Ramakrishna
  10. “Try not to confuse attachment with love. Attachment is about fear and dependency, and has more to do with love of self than love of another. Love without attachment is the purest love because it isn’t about what others can give you because your empty. It is about what you can give others because you’re already full.” ~ Yasmin Mogahed
  11. “Attachment is the shadow of the ego. Attachments are immediately created wherever you see ‘I am’.” ~ Rajneesh

If you can be unattached to the past every moment, then you are always fresh, young, just born. You pulsate with life and that pulsation gives you immortality. You are immortal, only unaware of the fact.” ~ Rajneesh
  14. “Love allows your beloved the freedom to be unlike you. Attachment asks for conformity to your needs and desires. Love imposes no demands. Attachment expresses an overwhelming demand – “Make me feel whole.” Love expands beyond the limits of two people. Attachment tries to exclude everything but two people.” ~ Deepak Chopra
  15. “Non-attachment is not the elimination of desire. It is the spaciousness to allow any quality of mind, any thought or feeling, to arise without closing around it, without eliminating the pure witness of being. It is an active receptivity to life.” ~ Stephen Levine
  16. “Loving, hating, having expectations: all these are attachments. Attachment prevents the growth of one’s true being.” ~ Laozi

  17. “A thought is harmless unless we believe it. It’s not our thoughts, but our attachment to our thoughts, that causes suffering. Attaching to a thought means believing that it’s true, without inquiring. A belief is a thought that we’ve been attaching to, often for years.” ~ Byron Katie
  18. “Overcoming attachment does not mean becoming cold and indifferent. On the contrary, it means learning to have relaxed control over our mind through understanding the real causes of happiness and fulfillment, and this enables us to enjoy life more and suffer less.” ~ Kathleen McDonald
  19. “If you try too much to change the outside, that shows that you are still attached. If a man tries to be detached, it shows attachment. Why bother about detachment if you are not attached? If a man escapes from women, it shows that sex is still the obsession. Otherwise, why escape from women if you are not obsessed?” ~ Rajneesh
  20. “Attachment brings misery, unattachment brings blissfulness. So use things, but don’t be used by them. Live life but don’t be lived by it. Possess things, but don’t be possessed by them. Have things – that’s not a problem. I am not for renunciation. Enjoy everything that life gives, but always remain free.” ~ Rajneesh
  21. “Emotional attachment to Maya is totally painful, this is a bad bargain.” ~ Guru Nanak

  22. “Who can depart from his pain and aloneness without regret? Too many fragments of the spirit have I scattered in these streets, and too many are the children of my longing that walk naked among these hills, and I cannot withdraw from them without a burden and an ache. It is not a garment I cast off this day, bit a skin that I tear with my own hands… Yet I cannot tarry longer.” ~ Khalil Gibran
  23. “By letting it go it all gets done. The world is won by those who let it go. But when you try and try. The world is beyond the winning.” ~ Laozi

Instead of taking up what we have to defend ourselves, we put our swords in the hands of our enemies and make them attack us.” ~ Teresa Giudice
  28. “Become detached from your ego, become detached from your possessions. Become simply detached from every possible source of attachment.” ~ Rajneesh

  30. “Attachment is the root cause of all misery. Possessiveness is nourishment for the ego.” ~ Rajneesh

  31. “Attachment to a baby is a long-term process, not a single, magical moment. The opportunity for bonding at birth may be compared to falling in love – staying in love takes longer and demands more work.” ~ T. Berry Brazelton
  32. “Do you want to be right more than you want to know the truth? It’s the truth that set me free. Acceptance, peace, and less attachment to a world of suffering are all effects of doing The Work. They’re not the goals. Do The Work for the love of freedom, for the love of truth.” ~ Byron Katie
  33. “Become alert about desire and non-attachment begins to appear. This is not to be made to happen, it follows naturally from awareness of attachment. Each one of us has to become aware of his attachments, and keep being so! Nothing should be done unconsciously.” ~ Rajneesh
  34. “Practice giving things away, not just things you don’t care about, but things you do like. Remember, it is not the size of a gift, it is its quality and the amount of mental attachment you overcome that count. So don’t bankrupt yourself on a momentary positive impulse, only to regret it later. Give thought to giving. Give small things, carefully, and observe the mental processes going along with the act of releasing the little thing you liked.” ~ Robert Thurman
  35. “All duality is a mind creation, all duality is created by the clinging and attached mind. When there is no attachment there is no duality.” ~ Rajneesh

  36. “Social engineering is using deception, manipulation and influence to convince a human who has access to a computer system to do something, like click on an attachment in an e-mail.” ~ Kevin Mitnick

  38. “While I have felt lonely many times in my life, the oddest feeling of all was after my mother, Lucille, died. My father had already died, but I always had some attachment to our big family while she was alive. It seems strange to say now that I felt so lonely, yet I did.” ~ Bill Murray
  39. “Attachment parenting is not a passive parenting style.” ~ Mayim Bialik

  40. “All of our miseries are nothing but attachment. Our whole ignorance and darkness is a strange combination of a thousand and one attachments.

You may be very much attached to your power and position, your presidency, your prime ministership, but they are like soap bubbles. Today they are here, tomorrow not even a trace will be left.” ~ Rajneesh
  41. “A leech who, having penetrated the shell of a turtle only to find that the creature has long been dead, deems it expedient to form a new attachment to a fresh turtle.” ~ Ambrose Bierce
  42. “To be unattached is not to renounce the world. If you renounce the world you are attached to the world; otherwise why should you renounce it? What is the point in renouncing it if you are not attached to it? Only attachment renounces. If you are really non-attached there is no question of any renunciation.” ~ Rajneesh
  43. “Samsaric pleasures are like salt water, the more we indulge, the more we crave.” ~ Sonam Rinchen

  44. “True transformation occurs only when we can look at ourselves squarely and face our attachments and inner demons, free from the buzz of commercial distraction and false social realities. We have to retreat into our own cocoons and come face-to-face with who we are. We have to turn toward our own inner darkness. For only by abandoning its attachments and facing the darkness does the caterpillar’s body begin to spread out and its light, beautiful wings begin to form.” ~ Julia Hill
  45. “Men are more evanescent than pictures, yet one sorrows for lost friends, and pictures are my friends. I have none others. I am never long enough with men to attach myself to them; and whatever feelings of attachment I have are to material things.” ~ John Ruskin , Friendship attachment quotes

  48. “To remain attached to the temporal, to the changing is to remain within the world of misery because the temporal will be taken away. You have invested so much in it but one day everything is taken away. Then it is natural to feel miserable. Misery is rooted in attachment to the body and bliss is rooted in non-attachment to the body; hence all the great masters have been teaching methods and means of non-attachment, of getting disidentified with the body, with the mind, with everything surrounds you, and of just remaining a pure witness. That’s what we are: pure witnessing, pure awareness.” ~ Rajneesh
  49. “Other people can’t cause us to be impatient unless we let them do so. In other words, others don’t make us impatient. We make ourselves impatient, through our expectations and demands, fixated attachments and stuckness.” ~ Surya Das
  50. “Much is being missed because of fear. We are too attached to the body and we go on creating more and more fear because of that attachment. The body is going to die, the body is part of death, the body is death – but you are beyond the body. You are not the body; you are the bodiless. Remember it. Realize it. Awaken yourself to this truth – that you are beyond the body. You are the witness, the seer.” ~ Rajneesh
  51. “I desire many things concerning myself; but I desire nothing so much, as to have a heart filled with love to the Lord. I long for a warm personal attachment to Him.” ~ George Muller

  52. “This is the whole secret of non-attachment: live in the world, but don’t be of the world. Love people, but don’t create attachments. Reflect people, reflect the beauties of the world – and there are so many. But don’t cling. The clinging mind loses its mirrorhood. And mirrorhood is Buddhahood. To keep that quality of mirroring continuously fresh is to remain young, is to remain pure, is to remain innocent. Know, but don’t create knowledge. Love, but don’t create desire. Live, live beautifully, live utterly, abandon yourself in the moment. But don’t look back. This is the art of non-attachment.” ~ Rajneesh
  53. “Attachment is the food for the mind to continue. Non-attached witnessing is the way to stop it without any effort to stop it. And when you start enjoying those blissful moments, your capacity to retain them for longer periods arises.” ~ Rajneesh
  54. “Avoid duplicity, that is, do not let your heart be divided between attachment to God and attachment to earthly things, ‘You cannot serve God and mammon’ (Mt. 6:24); cling to God alone, put your trust in Him alone; for the Devil, by inciting us to duplicity, seeks himself to gain possession of our heart, which is single and indivisible.” ~ John of Kronstadt
  55. “The more attached we are to a vision of the future, the less present we are to what is actually trying to emerge here and now.” ~ Peter Merry

  56. “Just seeing the fact that this is an attachment, that attachment is a bondage – a beautiful word for bondage – that attachment is not love… just seeing the ugliness of attachment – it drops; then arises love. The same energy that was becoming attachment, released from attachment becomes a totally different energy; it becomes love.” ~ Rajneesh
  57. “When you begin your transcendental training, focusing your best efforts, without attachment to outcomes, you will understand the peaceful warrior’s way.” ~ Dan Millman
  58. “Attachment is your biggest strength and your biggest weakness. Though it gives you the power to love someone more than yourself, it becomes difficult to live when you lose something you are attached to. Even when we have lost, we should go beyond that and get truly attached to someone. Loving someone truly is the most beautiful feeling.” ~ Shahid Kapoor , Losing attachment quotes
  59. “Love with attachment consists of waves of emotion, usually creating invisible iron chains.” ~ S. N. Goenka

  60. “If you get attached, then it becomes an obsession. If the person is not there, you are unhappy. If you miss the person, you are in misery. And attachment is such a disease that if the person is not there you are in misery, and if the person is there you are indifferent. Then it is okay; it is taken for granted. If the person is there it is okay – no more than that. If the person is not there, then you are in misery. This is attachment.” ~ Rajneesh
  61. “One day you will disappear on a funeral pyre – just into nothingness, as smoke. Don’t get attached to anything. This attachment takes you away from your real being; you become focused on the thing to which you are attached. Your awareness gets lost in things, in money, in people, in power. And there are a thousand and one things, the whole thick jungle around you, to be lost in. Remember, non-attachment is the secret of finding yourself, then awareness can turn inwards because you don’t have anything outside to catch hold of. It is free, and in this freedom you can know your self-nature.” ~ Rajneesh
  62. “If a person loves only one other person and is indifferent to all others, his love is not love but a symbiotic attachment, or an enlarged egotism.” ~ Erich Fromm
  63. “Transcendence means going beyond duality. Attachment means remaining within duality.” ~ Rajneesh

  64. “When Patanjali says “non-attachment”, he is not anti-love. Really, he is for love. Non-attachment means be natural, loving, flowing, but don’t get obsessed and addicted. Addiction is the problem. Then it is like a disease. You cannot love anybody except your child – this is addiction. Then you will be in misery. Your child can die; then there is no possibility for your love to flow. Even if your child is not going to die, he will grow. And the more he grows, the more he will become independent. And then there will be pain. Every mother suffers, every father suffers.” ~ Rajneesh
  65. “Identification with the body, with the mind, with our possessions, with our families, with our friends – any kind of identification takes you outwards. All your possessions will be outwards: your wife, your husband, your children, your body – your body is outside you; your mind – your mind is outside you. The only thing that is not outside you is the witnessing. Just the watchfulness – that is your buddha. Identification means losing witnessing, falling into the trap of attachment. That is our misery, that is our slavery.” ~ Rajneesh
