“You only lose what you cling to.”
Many of Buddha’s teachings are based upon the concept of attachment. There is no need to fear loss if we remove our emotional attachment from it. Unconditional love and joy comes from fully accepting the experience, even if it is short-lived.
“No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.”
Your life is yours, and yours alone. There is no way for anyone to experience the world from your unique perspective. Instead of leaning on others to guide you through life, be brave and blaze your own path.
The lessons of Guatam Buddha can be applied to nearly every facet of our lives. No matter where you came from or what you have experienced, we all have room to grow and evolve as people. When we remain conscious of our own thoughts and embrace our winding journey, we open the doors to bigger and brighter experiences.
