Sometimes, you might not understand the true meaning of whatever you are reading. However, you store all information in your consciousness.
One day,when you take a peaceful walk and you spend time to look at the nature, suddenly, you understood what you had learned.
When we talked to people on impermanence of life, people might understand yet they might not get the true meaning. When they read about the news on accident, they might said this is happening to others not themselves. When they read about obituary, they might think others live a short life and they can live longer. Our thinking tend to associate the “impermanence” with others but not to ourself! We are living in denial mode.
Take a walk in the garden, let’s the nature touch your heart and make you to fully understand that we are living in “impermanence”, everything happen without your control.
The plant was dying and leaving behind some unripe fruits. It’s out of sudden, even though it look healthy earlier. It’s similar to our life, even though we’ve a healthy body, wealth, power, loving family, fame… all this can be disappeared in a sudden and basically nothing belong to us. Always remember to live at here and now, the only precious moment in life! Let go your attachment in life!
I doubt that the unripe cherry tomatoes can ripen. The nature surprise us again and showing the power of nature…
It touched and warmth my heart when I look at this… It reminded us on how great is our parent, they might willingly to sacrifice their life for the survival of their children. No matter, how much challenges, they might still provide a peaceful harbor for their children. Always remember to express your love to your lovely parent.
Take a walk and enjoy the great insight from nature, our silence teacher!
