time to go

April 3, 2021

Life is defined by transience and impermanence. We experience inevitable change and loss, we and those we love and admire get sick, grow old, and pass away. That is reality.

And, the gap between that reality and our expectation is where our suffering resides.

To the extent we learn how to “close the gap” — sit and be with reality rather than resisting it with fear and anger — we are able to reduce our suffering and not be defined by it.

Our suffering isn’t “wrong.” But, neither is it inevitable.
