Daily Dharma: Transience

["Transience I" by Craig Chapman]

Today's Daily Dharma from Tricycle:

Find Enjoyment In Transience

We make every effort to keep things as they are, because human beings, alone, lament transience. Yet no matter how we grieve or protest, there is no way to impede the flow of anything. If we but see things as they are and flow with them, we may find enjoyment in transience. Because human life is transient, all manner of figures are woven into its fabric.

~ Shundo Aoyama, Zen Seeds from Everyday Mind, edited by Jean Smith, a Tricycle book.
