Going along with Impermanence

Yutang Lin

Reality being impermanent one had better go along.
Waves and tides rush to the shore one after another.
Regarding all equally the mind stays open and clear.
Universal caring renders the sentiment pure and deep.


Reality is impermanent; why not go along with it? Attachment amounts to suffering; difficult to renounce only due to self. Face and accept all equally; mind would remain clear. Caring universally would render the sentiment pure and deep.
