Impermanence – Eternally Existing and Dissolving

Whatever your spiritual / philosophical beliefs, you can discover priceless nuggets of life-changing wisdom in Buddhist teachings.

Thanks to Neurodivergent Rebel for the thought-provoking post 🙂

Everything comes into being and then dissolves.

Whenever you encounter suffering in your life you don’t have to worry because nothing lasts forever. This suffering is not permanent. Facing your fears becomes easier because you begin to realize that fear too is temporary.

Every pain and discomfort becomes much less of an obstacle because you realize your time of suffering is limited.

You learn to be grateful for the little things because you look at them as if they are already over. Like a shiny new teacup that is already broken. Each joy in life, no matter how small, is a blessing.

When we waste our time longing for tomorrow we miss the beauty that could have been found in today.

Life’s fleeting moments, the little pleasures, a sunrise, a friendly dog begging for a belly rub, colorful fall leaves, and the smell of fresh spring flowers, become more valuable.
