  "As a buddhist, the impermanence of the inner and outer worlds should occupy an important place in the mind. In particular, the vajrayana follower's sense of impermanence should be even stronger than any other emotions or feelings. Only in this way may compassion and wisdom  not become empty words. Happiness will not be exhausted or numb. Because it is possible that every present moment is your last moment on earth, I'm sure you don't want your final attitude towards this wonderful world to be deficient. You must not let negative or sad feelings take your last days away. I have very sincerly written this paragraph of text. I know you might think this isn't a very brilliant insight but I still hope you are able to read it and feel it. Because we are in a mundane normal life and also the so-called practice life, many many problems appear. In fact, much of this is because there is no perception of impermanence. Of course, this includes emotional ups and downs. Impermanence is not a pessimistic negative emotion but a kind of power, a kind of warmth in a sad world... The sense of impermanence is also one of the most important factors of spiritual awakening and is  indispensable to true consciousness. Let me share this with you. Let us cultivate impermanence as a true breakthrough in life. From now on, may we have true compassion, true wisdom, true awakening, and true happiness on this journey to liberation and to enlightenment! Happiness supported by a sense of impermanence is sustainable happiness in its true sense. "
May vast happiness saturate the world!
