Do not attempt to hold on. . .

Keep letting go
allow it to pass through you
do not attempt to hold on
to keep, to own
let it blow through you
like a breeze
smell the scent
on the wind
feel it touch you
and allow it to go
on its way

Yes. That is definitely what I have to do right now. Wise words.

Hi Susannah,

Wonderfully written! Reminds me of something similar to what I wrote on happiness and unhappiness:

Happiness arises from the thinking mind
Unhappiness also springs from the same source
They are like the floating cloud that come and go
The floating cloud itself originally does not exist
Just as the vast Sky is always clear and blue
It does not hinder or hold the floating cloud
We should view Happiness and Unhappiness as an illusion
Let it come, let it go

Thank you.
Kind Regards, Xinguan

Beautiful words, Susannah. I could learn a thing or two from this. :-)
