Impermanence

Posted on Aug 7, 2020 in Thoughts

Life reveals to us it’s game nature,
and yet demands respect.

It is continuous chaos, a ceaseless breaking of itself –
of reality and what we planned it to be.
And yet, it calls on us each time to rebuild
with the acknowledgment that it may be futile
because inevitably,
storms will come again.
That’s survival.

That’s the work –
Developing the strength of endurance
and the flexibility of acceptance.

It is coming to terms with the paradox of truth –
That this earthly work is of paramount importance
and also
all that which resides on this plane doesn’t matter.

How could it? It continues to vanish –
This matter,
These matters.

It is waking up from one dream
Into another
Into another.
