Death and Renewal!
What we call "life" is really the illusion of continuity; a succession of moments full of thought streams, emotions, and memories that are totally impersonal. As the "I" of one moment dissolves, the "I "of the next moment arises fresh and new. These two "I" s are neither the same nor different. When we deny or avoid death, we become blind to the obvious; only that which has the power to renew itself is eternal. Without the interplay of death and rebirth, the world would be stagnant and meaningless. It is only by dying to every moment that we are truly blessed by the beauty and grace of impermanence and creation.
