Dying Daily #239: Mindful Return

Everything comes to an end.

Nothing in this life escapes this, if something has a beginning it has an end.

The saddest and happiest fact of life is that this too shall pass.

We tend to focus on the ends of things we enjoy and the beginning of things we do not enjoy, but we can flip this without much effort.

All wonderful things have a beginning.

All difficult things have an end.

The beginning of anything is the end of something else.
The end of anything is the beginning of something new.

It’s one big constant flow, not a series of distinct moments, our mind just has a hard time seeing this because it defies categorization. The mind likes to organize things. This is useful, but it also distorts reality and can cause us to focus on the negative.

The end of one thing is the beginning of another, every exit is an entrance.
It all runs together.
