You shouldn't depend on anything so blindly.
You shouldn't say, "I can't live without her".
You shouldn't say this.
Because you can.
No need to say such cliche words.
For example, you shouldn't love too much. If she loves you less, you get hurt.
And generally she loves you less than you love her.
If you don't love much, you don't pity much.
Besides if you don't own much, you don't belong much.
In fact you shouldn't own much even your hands and feet.
You should pretend as if they are not yours.
So if you don't have anything, you don't fear of losing.
You should pretend as if you can live without them as well.
For example, you shouldn't have many furnitures at home.
You should be able to walk pell-mell.
If you should necessarily own something,
You should own where roofs meet the sky.
You should own the sky,
the sun, the moon and the stars...
For example, the polar star should be yours.
"This is mine", you should say.
If you really want something to belong to you,
For example, the rainbow should be yours.
If you really should belong to something, you should belong to colours.
For example, to orange or to pink.
Or you should belong to Heaven.
You should live without owning and belonging too much,
As if the life may flow away from your palms every moment,
As well as it will stay always yours.
You should live as attached to it by holding from its ends...
