Loss is part of being human

Loss is part of being Human

I had a dream the other night. I met a Buddhist Monk and he looked right into my eyes, or maybe I should say he looked deep into me and through me. He said, I understand that you engage in a practice that assumes Buddhist principles. I challenge you then to let go – don’t hold too hard to anything. Hold lightly, living, letting the present moment slip through your fingers so that it easily flows into the past. In the new moment you are empty and can be filled with the moment in all its possibilities.

Love and live now – remember and care, even though your heart breaks at the past no longer present. Live and love now. Honor what was; learn the lessons of the heart. Be present. Surrender to what is. Love is all there is.
