what’s the best way to protect your valuable jewelry?

never wear it.  keep it locked tight in a safe.

the best way to protect your carpets?

make sure nobody ever walks on them in their shoes.

the best way to keep a secret document?

hide it.  password it.  encode it.  never tell anyone it exists.

so it is with all things.  to keep it safe, keep it away from everyone.

just keep it away.

I agree. I’ve thought a lot along those lines, and realized a few things.

When we care about things, we become afraid of losing them.

I think most of our career-oriented, ultracommercial lifestyle comes from this fear: With hard work, it’s possible to have so much you can’t possibly lose it all. Or so our instincts tell us.

I think it would be much healthier to try and overcome that fear instead.

Just some food for thought. . .
