Fear of loss exists in one who has not seen the joy of what one has.

People who are afraid of death are those who are afraid of life. Fear of loss is a symptom that one is not enjoying the joy of ‘what is.’

In other words, one is not enjoying the beauty of the impermanent. Change is not a full stop but a comma in the vast story of life.

Most people who suffer hang on to what they don’t have rather than dance with what they have. Whatever you have is God’s gift and whatever goes is God’s wish. One has to float in life and not get drowned in one’s dreams.

Life is a divine opportunity for one to go beyond dreams and live in reality. To live in the world of lies is one domain and to live in the world of reality is yet another, altogether. One’s primary concern should be to realise the truth.

Let us have a deep commitment to know the truth. Let it be the divine seed from which understanding emerges. Let’s open our inner doors to truth and close our doors to lies.

Whatever you have is God’s gift and whatever goes is God’s wish
