When I’m feeling too attached to something – an object, a person, or an outcome – I meditate on the Buddhist saying, “The glass is already broken.”
When you start to sweat the small stuff, and remember that it’s all small stuff, you have to know that this will pass. We’re in a constant state of change with new beginnings and new endings every day.
And, like the glass, we’re here for a short time.
So find the love. Live joyously. Be generous. And remember that however your life is playing out, you’re learning something.
When you know that the glass is already broken, every moment you spend with it is precious.
