Nothing Lasts Forever
A student went to his meditation teacher and said, “My meditation is horrible! I feel so distracted, or my legs ache, or I’m constantly falling asleep. It’s just horrible!”
“It will pass,” the teacher said matter-of-factly.
A week later, the student came back to his teacher. “My meditation is wonderful! I feel so aware, so peaceful, so alive! It’s just wonderful!’
“It will pass,” the teacher replied matter-of-factly.
Insight: Nothing Lasts Forever.
One of the foremost teachings in Buddhism is that everything in life is impermanent.
Thinking deep we can understand the truth of impermanence. You are impermanent, Our loved ones are impermanent, Our home is impermanent, even our planet is impermanent, nothing is going to last forever. If we can learn to live with this understanding, we can find peace in everyday life.
