Nothing in life, good or bad, is permanent. There is no thought, event, emotion, thing, or being that is permanent. Impermanence is the rule. The elation or pain of impermanence is the meaning of existence itself. That is what ‘feeling alive’ is all about. There is nothing that can be held onto given that all is impermanent. Most of us, if not all, fight the law of Impermanence and want things, relationships, life itself to be permanent and fight to achieve that. Even the thought of Impermanence scares us and makes us sad. How can we live a life if we are fighting and refuse to accept the very rule that dictates life itself? Impermanence is not all sadness. It is not all Joy. It is existence itself.
