Flowing Changes

Yutang Lin

Worries of mind keep lingering, pulling and entangling;
Even when realized to be attachment could not refrain.
Suddenly merged into the flowing changes of all things;
Nets of illusions fade away, leaving space for leisure.


All things are changing like a river flowing without slowing down; human affairs and relationships are no exception. Attachment inevitably leads to suffering; why not merge into the changing flow of all things to enjoy leisure during the transient travel of life?
