This re-occurred to me today as I decided to live through shoulder pain. That this pain isn't mine—I'm just borrowing it. That this idea is not mine, I'm just borrowing it. This ego is not mine, it's just mine for a while
I don't have to take it seriously
I don't have to care what happens in it
I'm not required to hold onto it as tight as I can
I can live with one foot here and one foot somewhere else!
