Illusions-Diana Zen


Nothing in life is forever. Life is constantly influx, volatile, and impermanent. We waste the prime years of our lives toiling for impermanent materialistic gains. We build our castles upon a foundation of sand. Nothing is without a price in life. Our fleeting and empty gains are paid with Karmic entanglements that keeps us withing Samsara. In the end, the material universe we created disintegrates and dissolves into water flowing down the drain. 

"Nothing in life is forever. Life is constantly influx, volatile, and impermanent."

The "Stream" video essay gives me the similar feelings to watching the construction then destruction of a sand mandala. Watching the progression of this liquid universe reminds me that life so perishable and short-lived. I am resolved to focus on living every moment in the present and chart the life path toward spiritual freedom. In the end, only the attainment of Inner Peace within Enlightenment is truly enduring and boundless.

For most of us, the phrase “sitting in meditation” refers to the practice of physically sitting still and and re-focusing our attention to the present moment. Living with the true Zen meaning of sitting in meditation, we effortlessly exist at inner peace while at rest and while in motion. Within the true state of sitting in mediation, we live within the life stream at full awareness and adaptively respond to the life circumstances with our Inner Light and an universal compassion.
