I wrote recently about how short the Life is.
Today, I wanted to share something of a similar tone. The subject of Impermanence.
The realization of Impermanence, of the fact that all things including ourselves will cease to exist, that the contact with the people and things we love will end, can be very liberating.
The implications of this are vast. I’m yet to comprehend it in its entirety. But I feel it inside, running through my core, deep, touching my truth.
It brings up the tremendous value, extraordinary preciousness of every moment in Life. There truly isn’t any time to waste.
There’s no time to waste on arguing, on the rights and wrongs, “goods and bads”.
There’s no time for holding grudges.
There’s no time to feel guilty of the past and to live in the future.
All conditioned things are impermanent…
There will come a time when you won’t be able to touch your loved ones, to hug them, embrace them. You won’t be able to tell them how much they mean to you, how truly beautiful they are and how honored you are by their presence in your Life.
You won’t be able to express how grateful you are for the time of their Life they decided to share with you.
Knowing this deep in your heart, changes everything.
We can’t take anything for granted, because every thing will pass.
This moment is all we have.
This moment is the opportunity to embrace Life.
This moment is the opportunity to embrace the loved one.
