The Noble Truth.

Everything & everyone is impermanent.

All matter is in a constant state of flow.

Many resist this noble truth.

Hiding from its ever casting shadow.

Running to distraction.

Denying impermanence.

 

Resistance is futile.

Resistance is suffering.

Resistance steals joy.

 

The time is now.

To accept this noble truth.

All matter is in a constant state of movement.

 

Now is the time to live.

Now is the time to love that you are alive.

Not fear your impermanence.

Time.

What time is it?

I glance at my clock.

The time is now.

 

I must change.

I must grow.

I must let go.

Now.

 

Impermanence.

The constant flow of time.

A seed grows into a tree.

A baby grows into a young adult.

 

Dreams.

Love.

Peace.

Compassion.

Joy.

Now.

 

Breathing in deeply I embrace my impermanence.

Breathing out I feel joy pulsate throughout my body.

I vow to not waste my life.

I vow to live in the now.

For this is not my practice life.

Stardust.

Infinite space.

Infinite time.

Infinite possibilities.

 

The darkness of a black hole.

The blinding light of a quasar.

A massive star becomes a supernova.

A supernova transforms into a pulsar.

Dancing light into the darkness.

 

Does the Universe mourn the dying star?

Or does it celebrate the supernova for giving birth to new life?

 

Does a star truly die?

Or can it only transform?

 

For I am stardust.

Born from a dying star.

Dancing into the darkness.
