Try not to confuse attachment with love…

“Try not to confuse attachment with love. Attachment is about fear and dependency, and has more to do with love of self than love of another. Love without attachment is the purest love because it isn’t about what others can give you because you’re empty. It is about what you can give others because you’re already full.”

Yasmin Mogahed

The Love of My Life - us, wonderful, great, hope, you, woman, emotion, good, moon, night, greatest, happy, love, always, special, me, man, feeling, caring, together, stars, forever, gentle

Try not to confuse attachment with love…

What is your most valued possession?

QuoteFrom Tennessee Office for Refugees

Today I came across a beautiful article  Portraits of Refugees Posing With Their Most Valued Possessions with the most amazing images of human love and care I’ve ever seen. These images were created by Brian Sokol – a very talented photographer with an eye as sensitive to human pain and suffring as his heart:

 “The most important object Dowla was able to bring with her is the wooden pole balanced over her shoulder, with which she carried her six children during the 10-day journey from Gabanit to South Sudan. At times, the children were too tired to walk, forcing her to carry two on either side.”

“The most important thing that Shari was able to bring with her is the stick she holds. “I’ve had this stick since I went blind six years ago, she said. My son led me along the road with it. Without it, and him, I would be dead now.”

If you had to quickly flee both your home and country, what one possession would you make sure you take with you?
