Sunday one liners ~ 4

“In the end, only three things matter: how much you loved, how gently you lived,
and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you.”
~ Buddha

Sometimes one liners can lead to a conversation:

“Sometimes the letting go is the difficult part.”

“When we let go of what isn’t meant for us, we have two hands and a whole heart open to grab other opportunities as they float into view. Opportunities we might otherwise miss.”

Thank you, Nancy for the wise words of advice,

      Well, I am in the process of emptying my pockets, maybe I need to stitch up the holes in order for the new wealth – read opportunities – to come my way.

    I’ve known a lot of people who refuse to let go of things, who nurse grievances for decades. Such a waste of time and energy, and as Nancy says, it stops you grasping new opportunities.

      I particularly like the last one:

      “When we let go of what isn’t meant for us, we have two hands and a whole heart open to grab other opportunities as they float into view. Opportunities we might otherwise miss.”

        I love the way we can post something at our own kitchen table, before it takes flight round the globe like a migrating bird, to visit others all along the way.

    I couldn’t be better at loving. 🙂 But at living gently & letting go I’m not good. 🙁

    I am so borrowing the Buddha saying! I often wonder if all the sayings attributed to different well known people were really said by them, or was it some lowly minion filling in for the great one…
