In the end, only three things matter: how much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you.
We saw this at Ayutthaya, Thailand– the Buddha head embraced by the tree roots. Seems to be in perfect balance with nature. And… to go with this image I love is a quote from the Buddha I think is appropriate. With those three things, life can be simple and purity within reach. (photo credit is me)
