Nothing To Lose



One can lose nothing if they have nothing to lose. Yet, one can lose something by gaining something. The one with nothing has nothing to fear. What comes is what goes. What goes now will come back some day. The one who latches on to what they have is the one that does not rest easy at night. All things are transitory. A master was once asked if the cook at the temple was permanent. The master replied that no one is permanent. All things shall pass.
