As we divulge our inner most self to others we are strengthened not weakened.
It’s when we claim ownership over those that we share with do we feel a divide
if we are to part ways. Then we feel a sense of lose when the relationship is no
longer what it was, or no longer physically exist at all. If you are to love fully
and unconditionally in the realization of the impermanence of all life in the
physical plane. There is never a loss only gains. There are no relationships
in the physical realm that will last forever. Within the mind relationships need
never end. It’s been sometime since I have read “Tuesdays with Morrie” but it
was great book about a great man that was on his death bed of sorts
and yet he he was full of life till his very last breath . Now that’s the way to go…
giving all the way and I would like to say he still is…
Here are a few quotes from my friend Morrie whom I may have never met in
person in this lifetime but he has touched my heart dearly.
So I share:
“There’s a big confusion in this country over what we want versus what we need.
You need food, you want a chocolate sundae. You have to be honest with yourself.
You don’t need the latest sports car, you don’t need the biggest house. The truth is,
you don’t get satisfaction from those things. You know what really gives
you satisfaction? Offering others what you have to give.”~Morrie
“Death ends a life, not a relationship.” (174) – Morrie
