I practice non-attachment, I think it's healthy. I learned from experience the wisdom in the Tao Te Ching, Dhammapada & Bhagavad Gita. I'm glad GL put it in SW. Westerners wreak a lot of havoc getting all attached to people & things; it's not easy but I believe that learning to let go can be a powerful force for good in everyone's life. Sometimes, non-action is better than action. You have to give people space to work their own issues out & make their own journey to self knowledge & enlightenment. The sooner everyone on earth learns that possessions do not of themselves bring happiness the sooner we'd all be living in a happier world. So I obviously don't think that Jedi philosophy is full of it or out of touch. GL secreted some real wisdom into his fiction.
