Having to let go of things in your life

They say you don't know what you have until it's gone. But the truth is, you knew exactly what you had; you just thought you'd never lose it.

Its true that sometimes we really don't know what we have until we lose it, but it is also true that we never may know the things in life that we have lacked in until they arrives. In order to live your best life sometimes you are faced with having to let go of things in your life that you never thought that you would have to let go of. The things in life that make us happy are things in life that we must take proper care of, but are things that sometimes die for reasons that have nothing to do with our own lives.

Sometimes we are faced with the question of losing something or someone and we then give the effort that we should have always given. Finding a delicate balance in life is a very difficult task, but we must give forth a mighty effort in everything we do at all times, doing so will show that you are always appreciative for what you have, and will make instances in your life that you are forced to let go easier, because chances are it won't be your fault that you are forced to let go.

My Reflection

My Reflection

This site is a tribute to Buddhism. Buddhism has given me a tremendous inspiration to be who and where I am today. Although I came to America at a very young age, however, I never once forget who I am and where I came from. One thing I know for sure is I was born as a Buddhist, live as a Buddhist and will leave this earth as a Buddhist. I do not believe in superstition. I only believe in karma.

Tipitaka: The pali canon (Readings in Theravada Buddhism). A vast body of literature in English translation the texts add up to several thousand printed pages. Most -- but not all -- of the Canon has already been published in English over the years. Although only a small fraction of these texts are available here at Access to Insight, this collection can nonetheless be a very good place to start.
