Many times we have seen and listen that on the path of spirituality many of the spiritual practitioners try to detach themselves from everyone including their families too, to upgrade their spiritual development, though it is not a bad idea but performed in a healthy way is good but in an unhealthy way it will be disasters for everyone including them also.
Detaching yourself forcefully is wrong let it be in a natural way. Now the question is what is that natural way? The natural way is that when you become fully aware that “I am not the body, I am that I am”. And this process takes a lot of time to manifest from within.
In the name of spirituality, many practitioners leave their families to live them by their own and in that way he/she generates bad karma because they are running away from their responsibilities and to many of them it occurs naturally. Sometimes at some point of stage when the purpose of their life becomes service to mankind or to equally upgrade their soul, then that person sees that slowly one by one I am detaching from my loved ones and I even could not stop them to move away like this but you know what slowly unknowingly we are shredding those energies which are not matching with our purpose of incarnation or irrelevant to us.
Many of the people are becoming way smarter than ever before in the present lower mental age (ascending Dwapara Yuga as per Shri Yukteshwar Giri), they try to manipulate the things according to their needs and desire but that is also wrong and many of the people are drawn by their emotions and though can’t think practically.
Detachment is not compulsion and should not be enforced to anyone for the sake of spiritual development. A person also upgrades themselves spiritually by living with their families. In my opinion, detachment is not that you should buy/own nothing, but that nothing should buy/own you.
