Pondering the Nature of Impermanence - How to Make Your Own Nature Mandala

By contemp

lating the impermanence of everything in the world, we are forced to recognize that every time we do something could be the last time we do it, and this recognition can invest the things we do with a significance and intensity that would otherwise be absent. We will no longer sleepwalk through our life. - William Braxton Irvine

Impermanence, a cornerstone of Buddhist teaching contemplates the cycle of birth and death and the inevitable truth that we all shall pass away at some point. And not only are we subject to impermanence, but so too are all things.

"In the presence of eternity, the mountains are as transient as clouds" - Robert Green Ingersoll

Our modern lives tend not to prescribe to the truth of impermanence, instead, they ask us to buy more, get more, have more and be more - an approach that can only lead to discontent and an affliction of the 'never enoughs'. Although contemplating everything ending can be challenging, unsetting and scary for most. We can approach this from a gentler place.

Today I have a special worksheet that you can download for free which will help you to connect to nature as a teacher and create your own nature mandala.
