When we talk about “Impermanence” or “Changes”, most of us, we can understand the meaning well. Of course, we can be an expert in theory, we can talk about the meaning, the application and also apply the “impermanence” happened to others easily.
It’ll be the same like we keep looking at the recipe book and also the yummy cuisine, you can be keep reading for 100 or even 1,000 times, Do you know the actual taste of the food which is showing in the book? Of course, you don’t know the taste until you cook it and taste it.
Such a simple theory, Unfortunately, most of us, we forgot to apply and practice in our own life.
Just ask yourself, Are you able to face impermanence in life? Are you ready to accept impermanence in life?
I went to hair salon yesterday. My new hair stylist asked me, ” Can you accept changes?” I said, “Of course, Yes.” Then, she recommended a new hairstyle with “bob shaving back”. I love to experience changes in life, this was something new to try out and the shorter is the hair, the lesser time needed for hair wash and drying, moreover its great way to reduce consumption of water, shampoo, hair condition and electricity. Once she started to shave my hair, immediately I am thinking of “renunciation” and all our master need to shave off their hair, how much courage and determination, they need to let go mundane life and start the beautiful spiritual path.
Are you willing to try out a new look or a new hairstyle? Are you only follow the same styling? Embrace changes in your life, make yourself to understand and experience change is inevitable and nothing is permanence. Don’t live at comfort zone, if not gradually you are losing passion in life.
