What Can You Lose?

One never loses anything, except the past.

  1. Which is why it's so much better to just let go of the past and enjoy the present instead of dwelling on it.

  2. The past is gone. The future is mostly unknown. The present moment is where we really live.

  3. There's no doubt about it...loss hurts, some losses more than others. Suffering loss is a powerful reminder that all we really "have" is contained in the here and now. Every loss is accompanied by the choice about whether to grow or stagnate. Acceptance is humbling, but the growth that comes from moving on is liberating.

  4. Maybe not even then, theres always you're memories.
    Memories don't leave like people do.

  5. Nobody loses anything because nobody owns anything ...we came here empty hand on earth and we would go to heaven without taking anything from earth but one of the lesson we learn while on earth is how to lose the past if it is bad and only few lucky people can master that art ....Your aphorism is very deep !

  9. What about Faulkner's famous quote, "The past is never dead. It's not even past." I say we always have the choice to remain present, dwell into the past or project into the future but the present is the best choice.

  11. Marty, when we lose the present its called past. Losing the past is like losing one's memory, as in some godforsaken maladies. It must be awful then.

  13. Yes, the past is yesterday, but you can lose in the present as well, and that loss can extend into the as yet unknown future. It’s a matter of perspective.
