Essie — I agree. Mindfulness about ‘stuff’ as well as action/word/deed — help ease a soul along in Life. I am not a Christian either, however, attachment to the impermanent causes much suffering in this world.
When I was 6 our house burned. We lost every THING in it. I learned then — as long as the humans and our pets were ok — we would get more stuff. You can always get. more. stuff. But later at 12 when my mother died — well — you don’t get another mother.
People matter. Things — not so much.
Thank you Chris & Essie for a wonderful read this evening. ❤
