Turtles. They live to be 3 or 400 years old. They too are impermanent.
If you see the impermanent nature of the person you love, your own body, your job, house or possession, your pain and sorrow, a flower, a pebble in the waters, a puppy, or even your current trauma ...
... you’re at the very heart of reality.
All things are impermanent.
The past is gone. The future may not come. You only have the present.
This is the only moment where you can be alive. And you have this moment!
Soak in the freedom of living in your now.
