Impermanence and Its Two Greatest Gifts

That Buddah was a bright fellow, I’d say. If you live long enough to experience a life of any real length, it turns out his whole schtick about attachment as the source of human suffering is true. As it turns out, impermanence is as fundamental as the air we breathe. 

If we take on the view that life is inherently impermanent, we can follow that there are two important tag along virtues it presents: presence and gratitude. 

When everything in life is temporary (including life itself) the most obvious place to put your time is in the moment.

By definition, the future is futile. 

Impermanence also swings a big stick when the things we love go away. Naturally, the best rebuttal to this harsh fact is extreme gratitude for the things we do have. After all, the hands of time aren’t kind to their existence. 

It’s not my choice to live in a world of impermanence, but since we do it seems that presence to this moment and gratitude ought to follow. Give it a try!
