Slow down in life, else life will force you to slow down.

Today we are all stuck into materiality and still do not realize it. E.g. My husband/father/wife got me these plates from China. They are very pretty, expensive and I love them very much. But if our maid breaks one of these plates, we tend to get very upset. We will yell at her and cry about it for a long time. And if we break these ourselves, we would keep wondering how we made such a mistake.
Everyone makes mistakes and we should realize the fact that IT WAS ONLY A PLATE. Should we really be worried that the plate broke or rather be worried if someone got hurt? One plate gone is not the end of the world. It's really not worth all the stress for such silly things in life. Learn to let go of material things in life. Losing any material things should not matter or make any difference, think about it, relationships and people are more important in life.
