Two Qualities of Impermanence

The Buddhist notion of impermanence really has two qualities.

It can seem ruthless if you look at it from the point of view that the ultimate message in our lives is that life itself is impermanent. When you grapple with that it’s freaky because we live as if we were going to go on forever.

On the other hand, being in tune with impermanence allows us to open to the beauty of life and savor every moment of being alive.
