Non-Attachment v. Detachment

There is a profound difference between being detached, being separate, and not participating fully or at all and being fully engaged in activities but not being attached to the outcome.  Sometimes, after I have a fantastic time, I remember the suffering that can follow from longing for more, and I wonder whether it was worth it.  I have such thoughts only fleetingly.  The more I practice yoga and the attendant non-attachment to particular future outcomes based on past experience and desire, the more I am able to exult in what the present has to offer.

    Non attachment and enjoyment..being in the moment is a difficult task especially with an open heart. Thanks for the thoughts to ponder.
