No Loss No Gain

We didn't gain anything from being
born human, except a chance to
understand. Growing up was a 
natural process...for some it was 
better than for others. Arriving at
adulthood was a landmark, and the
rest of life continued. Saying that
you gained anything; material
possessions, knowledge, power,
prestige, is a false assumption.
Yes, a crab gains a shell, a home,
that it decorates with seaweed, but, 
it's just part of the life cycle...all the
buildings you built, and everything 
else you own, is just part of that 
cycle...you don't really "own" 
anything for more than a few dozen
years...those things are only a 
manifestation of living that will have 
to be given up when that process is 
over. Nothing is gained, nothing lost
in that process. Awareness is the only
worthwhile thing that can grow and is
lasting.

All relationships end. Dumped, lost or left for dead, a boundless wound until grieved in the gut and released. Acceptance followed by lovingkindness. Less lust these days, albeit more content. Kuntuzanpo.
