Linger Longer April 16, 2012

What if everything we claim to possess possesses a part of us in return . . . splintering our energy into fragments?

When we claim to possess something (MY house, MY car,  MY workplace), we invest energy into “owning IT” and caring for IT.

We infuse part of ourselves with each person, place, or thing we “grow attached to.”

What if, as a result of our investment, the person, place, or thing comes to possess a bit of us in exchange?  

For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.

We give . . . IT takes.

What happens when we leave IT behind (or IT leaves us behind)? 

Does our energy linger longer?

What say you?
