There is something unique and magical about someone “leaving.” Some are genuinely happy for others to move on, because it may reflect their own happiness. Others are not so thrilled to see friends or family members leave, it may trigger their own misery. We often attach mixed feelings about “leaving” to the notion of drama, such as abandonment. Many moons ago, our ancestors left Africa to Asia and Europe, following animals’ footsteps, searching for food and resources, and later, developing communities and so on. “Leaving” from one place to another was and is a way of survival, or a way of life. Today, all over the world, “leaving” one’s home can have many different connotations. There are refugees leaving their homes due to civil wars or any kind of invasion. Some leave their hometowns or countries to find work or a better life. Children leave their parents to go to schools or universities. Many people leave their homes because they like to travel, adventure, or discover new places. “Leaving” can or cannot be as dramatic as it really is. Perhaps, leaving or beginning a different stage of our lives is as natural as living, like a child leaving his/her childhood to become an adult, and then from adulthood to golden age – all these are part of our human cycle, the growing process. As Buddha says, “Birth, old age, sickness, and death are the cyclical process of life.” What we can truly do is to live to the fullest of every moment of our lives, in the here and now.
