Subject to Decay

Tibetan Buddha[1]

All things are transient and subject to
decay. To become attached to things leads
to suffering. One can not truly say this
belongs to me, or this is what I truly am.
The answer to all things cannot be found in
the outer world of things or self-concepts.

  1. Yes all things are subject to decay.. .. We live here within a transitionary world which moves through its birth death and renewal.. We are all of us learning we are all of us moving through our progression.. And we own nothing.. For we come with nothing and leave with nothing.. All else is merely borrowed in between… It often makes me laugh how we strive so hard as we toil and work to buy the things in life. that later are passed on, sold, or thrown away by others..
    Much better to store the treasures of the heart… and memories which can never fade or ever be broken.. Such as the bonds of love..
    Thank you dear Eddie.. a wonderful post.. ­čÖé

  2. Nice words Eddie, also I came across this text the other day. “Detachment is not that you should own nothing, but that nothing should own you.” Ali Ibn Abi Talib
