This Life Is Next to Nothing

Long life
can’t be gotten with wealth,
nor aging
warded off with treasure.
The wise say this life
is next to nothing —
impermanent,
subject to change.

Ratthapala Sutta

This time of plague and uncertainty is ideal for waking up. We are constantly reminded that there is no solid ground. That Venerable Kondañña’s insight is just as true today as it was 2500 years ago. May I boot squander this like in unabated pursuit of sense pleasures.
