SILKEN SHACKLES

Everything you own, care for or about is at root just one more thing you can lose.

About Ben Naga

The Spirit that graces me with its passing has no name and stems not from thoughts and words, though it gathers them up as it flows, but from feeling.

  1. The thought that I have around this is that everything is temporary and so you never really have anything in the first place, so there is nothing to lose later, only things to enjoy in the moment you find yourself in.

    If in a moment you find yourself with sadness about things that have been lost to time, then you find yourself living in the past hoping for the future to recreate what once was. If you find yourself hoping for something you never had, then you find yourself living in the suspended state of waiting for a future that might never happen. Either place you find yourself in, it is not in the here and now which is an awareness of all that the moment offers and an abundant enjoyment of everything that is.

    Which no matter what those details turn out to be, is a wonderful place to be.
