Thought for the Day

[. . .] The practice of letting go and embracing simplicity is one way
we prepare ourselves for what is to come. One day we all will have
to let go of everything — even our own breath. It will be a day 
of utter simplicity — a day when the importance of stuff fades.
Learning to live simply prepares us for our last breath while
cultivating in us the freedom to truly live here and now. [. . .]
