Detachment


Ever tried to breathe in and
not breathe out? It's impossible to do so for long. I guess it's the same with relationships and affection. You cannot keep it in or with you - you have to let it go. That's the only way you will be able to live. Else you'll just die of suffocation.

So the next time you feel like holding onto something - a place, a feeling, a person, a thing - think about what that kind of self-imposed ownership would do to your soul. It will make it stop breathing. Don't do that to yourself. Let it out. And let it go.

When the heart grieves over what it has lost, the spirit rejoices over what it has left.

Vishal,

No of course it is not. It's always easier said (or written) than done. But that's the precise reason why I am writing it - coz I know what it means to do it :)

And yes - without doubt, everything happens for the good!

Cheers!

priyanka,

it was more on da positive side, since these decisions may not be required, but yes i feeel, it helps u breath if sum relations r attached to u which have no eventual meaning...

hey i invite you to have a look at my blog too, sumthings which i have always written but never posted publicly. putting it one by one and as circumstances have chnged, few things to depict present and mind..

best wishes,

vishal maheshwari.
