Owning nothing is wealth

In Uncategorized on April 7, 2011 at 9:17 am

‘Each thing owned or each person loved will bring sorrow so minimize both to essential items and small family units.’

The Enlightened however already know that love need never be restricted as such as understanding grows so this is seen: Countries are conceptual boundaries not seen by birds, People are conceptual boundaries not seen by the awakened. Restricting love to a concept then is seen to be sorrow of the mind only. Attachment of the mind to things, which are already in decay, sets up future sorrow. The Enlightened are non-attached and in so embrace all.
