At that night in the end of my walk in the ancient city of Hoi An, Vietnam, I stood on a small bridge across the famous Japanese Bridge when I saw a happy couple, the happy bride-and-groom-to-be taking their pre-wedding photos.
A lovely moment I saw when they launched to float small crown-shaped containers with a candle inside into the river, as a symbol to let go of their anger, hatred, defilement and all past transgressions. A moment later the falling-in-love couple stood with holding hands to each other. Silently they watched their weightless crown-shaped containers with candle inside moving slowly through the darkness of the night, bobbing on the surface of the Thu Bon River and took their weigh-burden away.
Letting go of the past is like lifting a heavy weight off your shoulder. It allows you to finally move on and start a new life.
