I think it's a loved one. How many things, objects or people gain value through absence? Why do we take so much for granted that we fail to appreciate until missing or absent? Can we ever make sense of this?
It's the same story: you don't know what you've got till it's gone. Living life would be very difficult if you went around assuming that everything you like about it could be gone at any time. Taking things for granted is actually a healthy way to live.
Not so difficult to get along when you know that anyone can be gone at any moment. It's part of equanimity, which can be spontaneous or a deliberate act which requires a bit of effort and focus.
The power of ones presence can only be influenced through the power of how his/her positive vibrations are received and manifested into another's attachment
I think that the saying you don't know what you have until it's gone is true. It just seems like people don't think that what you have could be gone some day, whether it be people in their lives or something else.
