I’ve think a lot about our impermanence. While some could believe that’s a bit morbid, to me it is the most enlivening topic to contemplate.
Life is impermanent in every form. Our bodies, like clothes, wear out. They are ours, but only for a short time. The more we deeply feel the essence of this fact, the easier it is to appreciate our moments and care for our bodies.
I believe this is because we often crave something once we recognize we might lose it. So often we cling, trying to hold on. To what? We’re not necessarily sure. Something we believe that might possibly give us power or control over the inevitable: Facing our impermanence.
So wrapping it up, because I’ve got a lot I want to do with my time while I have it, I’ll say: The sooner we embrace the fact that everything changes, that everything passes … This is when we stop wasting moments.
