In a “perfect” world, we would never have to say good-bye to the pets and people we love. 

We would be able to eat all we want without gaining weight. 

We would never have to suffer from the consequences of poor choices made by us or others.

We wouldn’t have to exercise our bodies, our minds, or our self-restraint. 

We would never grow old. 

We would never be sick.

We would never die.

We would never learn . . . how to let go.

Letting go is the path to freedom. ~ Lama Surya Das

When we relinquish or renounce the extraneous, we are left with the essential, which cannot be lost.  ~ Lama Surya Das

No rules.  Just write!
