Impermanence

One of the most confounding things about samsara is the fact that things can change so quickly and completely. Truly, if one does not live in heedfulness, guarding one’s mindfulness and returning to the theme it is very likely that they will find themselves completely lost and confused, pursuing short term gain and pleasure.

This is the situation I find myself in today. I have gone from being painfully aware of the precarious nature of existence to complacency almost overnight. And what roused me to act only days ago more finds nowhere to alight. What’s to be done? I’m not sure but allowing the mind to wallow in this state surely won’t do.
