Give Up Your Cows!

It can be hard to detach a feeling we get from something that provides us with that feeling; whether positive or negative. The loss of my job is not a reflection of me. I am not my job. While buying new shoes may bring me joy, joy is not new shoes.

  1. Physical/Mental suffering (Dukkha): The Farmer is distraught over missing cows.
  2. All composite things sooner or later must come apart (Anatta): The Farmer is getting older, making it harder to maintain a farm.
  3. Change is inevitable (Anicca): One day the farmer will wake up to find his cows are missing or dead.




Not really human, almost an alien, kind of a robot.
