Detachment Enables To Understand The Importance Of The Virtue !

Balance makes life peaceful and happy. A life of peace is a life of balance. Sometimes, even a single negative thought or word can throw one out of balance. Even a virtue needs to be in balance. For instance determination, which provides energy and concentration necessary for any accomplishment can become stubbornness. So determination when balanced with patience and flexibility creates a life of happiness. When we have detachment whilst using a virtue, we are able to maintain balance. Otherwise we find that even a virtue to an extreme takes a negative form. Detachment enables us to recognize the importance of the virtue and use it in the right way, according to the requirement.

~ Brahma Kumaris, Mt Abu.
