This Too, Shall Pass

We are not eternal; we have a beginning, as we have an end. Yesterday was different than today, as tomorrow will be different than yesterday. The causes of today, will be be effects of tomorrow, as the effects of today, are the consequences of yesterday. Everything passes, whether is happiness, excitement, sadness, anger, anxiety, worry, etc., shall pass. Love, on the other hand, is eternal. True love is forever, the uncorrupted one. We need to strive for that which is eternal.
