DO WE TAKE EVERYTHING FOR GRANTED, THAT WE CAN LIVE FOREVER?
Writer LEO BABAUTA wrote a beautiful piece on the subject of
Read it and you’ll find his message rings so true.
You have LIFE and everyone is blessed with only a short span on Mother Earth.
So why take everything for granted and fritter away precious moments?
“The cherry blossom falls after its short beautiful bloom.
It floats gently down to earth.
Its life is over, but the limitedness of its existence is one of the biggest reasons the blossom is so gorgeous.
If we knew that the blossom would last forever, it wouldn’t have the same poignant beauty, and we’d take it for granted.
The blossom’s impermanence, its fleetingness, its transience — this is why we appreciate it.
Our lives are similarly short.
We have but a moment on this rock, but we forget that impermanence and take our days for granted.
We fritter away those days with the wasted activities of TV, social media, computer games.
If we remember the impermanence of life, perhaps we could appreciate its gentle passing with as much appreciation as a cherry blossom.”
Do you agree?
REALLY KOOL, right?
