How Do I Accept The Impermanence Of Life?
impermanence is the state of being temporary i mean just for a while or for a certain period.
Moments turn into days which turn into weeks, months and finally years. these are all passing.
If at all anything were permanent, i’d still be 12 years old but things are constantly changing.
Its always very important to remind oneself that nothing lasts forever!
As you confront adversity and also as negative emotions become overwhelming ; at some point in life we all feel grief and this is something we have no control over.
Grief comes from a loss of a loved one, loss of a job or loss of a relationship or loss of possessions interms of money and property which is very sad and painful. A number of us become unfortunate victims of wrong doings and we can not hold to that.
If you are able to face these situations keeping at the back of your mind that nothing is permanent then you are more likely to overcome grief.
impermanence truly are conditioned things, having the nature of arising and passing away. if they arise and are extinguished, there eradication brings true happiness.
Attachment is the root of suffering– Buddha-
Accepting that everyone and everything is temporary is a refreshing concept whether you want to believe it or not.
everything has an expiration date including the fact that we will all die.
How do i deal with my impermanence situations in life?
Everyday i remind myself this simple affirmations
- I am sure to grow old and nothing can change that.
- I am sure to get sick and i have no control over it.
- It is okay to be parted with that which is dearest to me for example my loved one or a relationship.
- I am responsible for each and every decision i make.
When you realize that youthful days, health or riches are short lived then you will never take anything for granted and you’ll have the ability to live in the present and enjoy every moment of life
