Loss or a missed gain?


Do you worry upon the risk of loss?


Do you worry upon the risk of a missed gain?

You may be insensitive to losses and gain, well, obviously it is much appreciated. But what if you need to pick any one of the above two options..;)

  1. I do not worry about that which is out of my control. I embrace the choices I make and that happen to me, growing along the way. A deep post, thanks for sharing.

  3. This is tough to answer :/ but, I guess I’m often worried of the losses than the missed gain. Maybe its the humane way to deal with pain :/

  7. “worry upon the risk of a missed gain.”

    We cannot worry about the risk of Loss as it is an integral part of life. Both losses and gains come to us as results of our actions. But sometimes when with many aspirations we turn to worry about the gain we missed.
    This is my personal opinion.

  9. This is what risk is all about.. Sometimes you gain and sometimes you lose. And it requires guts also to take risk… 🙂

  10. That, for me, would depend on what is being lost, or gained! Money? Or some relationship? No, couldn’t care less. But if I lost an opportunity to practice my life’s purpose, which is to gain a compassionate nature; if I fell into the selfish refusal to be of some practical help to someone because of any number of reasons, I would feel that as a real loss, but would I “worry” about it? No, I would attempt to correct my error, first inwardly, then if possible, outwardly. Then carry on.

    • That’s a little strange to know that you don’t care much even about a lost relationship….


      • Strange? Yes, that describes my state of mind. I practice detachment. In order to be “there” for anyone who may need my help, I can’t hold on to special relationships, that being a contradiction. Some day in the distant future (if earth has such a future), this will be understood by all as elementary and you will no longer have wars, domestic abuse, misogyny or racism: these are the end result of ‘special’ relationships.

        • I understand and totally respect your reasons behind this detached state… yesterday in a movie it was told like “you don’t hate me, but still you have to kill me as it is essential for your survival..”
          don’t you think that we can never keep our eyes shut upon that survival rule


          • To that I would reply, Akhila, that our notion of survival mode is predicated upon the belief that we can and must die and that we should do all in our power to prolong our span of physical life here. Once that belief is found to be false and rejected, life, no longer “as we know it” opens up to whole new vistas and visions and possibilities. For example I now know for fact that I do not die. I am not a body, but a mind, connected to the infinite, and eternal, i.e., existing before and beyond time. Since such a thing cannot die it needs not exist or subsist in survival mode. Those unable to grasp, or accept, this truth must remain in a physical survival mode even knowing that in the end they must relinquish it all and die. There are, of course, many clues to our non-dying state. The most obvious is that we are curious creatures, always wanting to know more, always learning and probing our boundaries. If we were strictly brain creatures with no connection to the infinite we would have no desire, no reason, to seek to learn anything since it all ends when we die anyway. We would not even ask the question, “Why am I learning this?” since it would be meaningless. Take the well known, well-worn Descartes statement: “cogito ergo sum” or “je pense, donc je suis” or in English: I think, therefore I am. What is it that thinks? A brain is a computer, it does not think, it receives information and translates that to the body. The information is cogitated in the mind and the mind is part of the infinite cosmos… ergo sum!
