It passes

Whatever comes, it always passes, all things, situations, events, people and so on are temporary.

Yet the mind convinces is that they are permanent. Either for the good or the bad.

If we accept what is and accept people as they are, then whatever occurs we can be at peace with it.

Alternatively, we can allow our mind to make us suffer with its attachments to all things and all people.

These attachments don’t bring joy they bring expectations, conditions and that leads to burden on others and suffering within.

Acceptance allows inner peace and letting go of attachments allows us to accept.

It passes and that’s ok. Just be.

Except for this moment

It all goes away
The wind comes
The leaves blow around
The trees bend
Branches break
More leaves fall and disappear

It all goes away
The sea comes
The wave breaks
The sand gets wet
The wave retreats
The sand dries

It all goes away
The bulb sprouts
The shoots come
The stem grows
The flower blooms
The flower dies

It all goes away
It’s all temporary
Life comes
Life goes
Nothing lasts
Except for this moment
