What's The One Thing You Can't Live Without?

Is there one thing that you could never part with no matter what? Let's just say there's been a warning of empending doom and you're allowed to take one thing with you (besides children and pets) What would you take with you and why? For me, I'm not a very materialistic person at all, so there's nothing sentimental that I'd want to take. So, with that said, I would take my wool blanket. This would serve both for survival (if necessary) and as a "comfort" thing...How about you?

Just one thing would be some cushions for me to sit on and meditate. If everything was coming to an end, I would spend what time was left in meditation putting all my effort into discovering for myself, a greater level of awareness that there was much more than just the material world.

I think I would spend my last moments in a very similar manner - meditating and waiting for the "end" to come. Thanks for sharing.

The most important and significan thing is to build CONFIDENCE with in ,I think may you be very practical but the lack of confidence won't let you survive ever happily, the only thing I would carry is hopeful confidence, which would yield me aaL the Initiatives.

I just can't live without any reading material in my hand. It helps me to kill boredom. Whereever I am I have to have something to read. Even if I am travelling and happen to forget to bring my book I will run to the nearest bookstore to buy any reading material.

Oh, yes....I love reading too. Now, do you have an absolute favorite book that you've read, like, a dozen times? I read "The Outsiders" by S.E. Hinton so many times, I had to purchase a new copy within the first year of having it. Crazy, eh?

It is said that 'WE HAVE COME HERE WITH EMPTY HANDS AND WE ARE GOING BACK WITH EMPTY HANDS' So nothing we brought with us and so we have nothing to take from here too!

I agree with your philosophy here and that's why I chose my wool blanket - at least I would have something to keep me warm and comfortable while facing posible "end times".
