The Winds Of Change

Updated: Aug 23, 2021

Impermanence is the big elephant in the room

We can’t seem to accept the fact that nothing in this world lasts forever

That the only guarantee is perpetual change

See, if you put all your hopes in the promise of this world

Then you’re bound to be disappointed

Because in this world, everything perishes

In this life, you and everything you know is now dispensable.

But if you can bring yourself to see beyond, you’ll realise that it doesn’t have to be this way

If you can commit yourself to a higher standard

A better way of being in the world

Then true conviction can alone endure

Established values can endure

Real Love always endures

And real Life continues to endure.

But it’s when you reject all these things, that you subject yourself to the perils of impermanence

Moving in and out of transient relationships

Pinning your hopes on transient feelings and emotions

On transient people and things

On transient interests and passions

On transient spiritual beliefs and practices

When you do that, you commit yourself to death, not life.

To the temporary, not the eternal

My point is, if you want Life, real Life,

Then you need to ground yourself in something immoveable and unchangeable

Anchor your life in something reliable, dependable

Something that you can trust and that won’t let you down

This is The Way.

It was around before you got here and it will be around long after you’re gone.
