A friend of mine once told me that everything is in constant motion, and as time goes by, I've noticed he was completely right.
Since everything IS in constant motion, there's no reason why we should attach to things, for everything will leave us, stop working, or, I don't know, somehow stop fitting in our lives.
That does not include only those things we're able to see, touch, smell... Like those pumps you loved, the wonderful red cardigan that kept you warm on cold days, that good-old-friend that's now only old, but no longer good, or that piece of paper that you kept in your pocket all the time, reminding you things you're supposed to know.
Those changes include everything around us, and within ourselves. You know, things such as feelings, memories, and all that stuff we tend to keep ((in my case) to ourselves.)
Lately I've been trying to throw away everything that's useless... It's not an easy task, I must admit, but quite rewarding.
I know that there's a reason why things happen, (or... don't happen :P) the way they do, like that The Beatles song: "There's nowhere you can be that isn't where you're meant to be." Simple lessons, that's what life's about, tis always givin' us lessons.
We were born alone, bald, and naked, and everything was perfect, wasn't it? Everything we have now is a gift, things given to us by God, hard work or whatever your beliefs are, enjoy them while they're here, and be thankful when they're gone. Don't cry over spilled milk. Mk?
This is an EXTREME version of what I'm trying to say:
There is that dimension where there is neither earth, nor water, nor fire, nor wind; neither dimension of the infinitude of space, nor dimension of the infinitude of consciousness, nor dimension of nothingness, nor dimension of neither perception nor non-perception; neither this world, nor the next world, nor sun, nor moon.
And there, I say, there is neither coming, nor going, nor stasis; neither passing away nor arising: without stance, without foundation, without support. This, just this, is the end of stress.
Okay, went a bit far up there... that's almost impossible, at least for you, mortals. =P
But you get the idea, you don't need anything other than your peace of mind... and a piece of mind, y'know ;).
I know I have a MD in complicating the simple, but that's something I'm working on, and it's working, you should try it. ;)
It's time to live; we're young, healthy, goodlooking ;), and we have everything we need, (don't believe me? just touch your chest, and you'll probably feel something in there, beating like there's no tomorrow, if you don't feel what I'm describing, call 911, right now :P)
Things change, feelings change, everything changes, and we must let go, learn our lesson and keep on living, and of course, keep on loving. That's, without doubt, what will make us happy.
Be happy, don't regret, and pleaaaase, forget. ;)
Loads of love
