All Passes Away

Thich Nhat Hanh in Viet Nam

Renunciation is not getting rid of the things of this world,
but accepting that they pass away.  Aitken Roshi

Prayer of Letting Go

If life is a lesson
In letting go;
May my life then, Lord,
As water,
Through my fingers flow.

Connie Nelson Ahlberg

The greatest achievement is selflessness.
The greatest worth is self-mastery.
The greatest quality is seeking to serve others.
The greatest precept is continual awareness.
The greatest medicine is the emptiness of everything.
The greatest action is not conforming with the worlds ways.
The greatest magic is transmuting the passions.
The greatest generosity is non-attachment.
The greatest goodness is a peaceful mind.
The greatest patience is humility.
The greatest effort is not concerned with results.
The greatest meditation is a mind that lets go.
The greatest wisdom is seeing through appearances.
