The only constant in life is change.
If you pay attention to nature you’ll see this valuable lesson play itself out day after day. Nothing remains stagnant. The weather changes and seasons change. And the simple fact of the matter is that living things are either growing or they are slowly decaying and dying.
Such is the cycle of life.
At the same time, people desire stability. Security. We don’t just want things to stay the same, many people feel a deep need for things to remain exactly the way they are. This inward craving is probably best expressed by the saying “better the devil you know than the devil you don’t.”
And such is the root of our inner conflict.
Outwardly we experience constant change while inwardly we desire permanence. Hence the drive to remember, to memorialize the past, to cling to what has, in truth, already died and passed away.
The Headstone comes to remind us of this one fundamental fact: that nothing lasts forever in exactly the same way. And that for every ending there is a new beginning.
- End of a cycle
- Work of art
Some questions to guide your meditation:
- How do you feel about change?
- What aspect of your life is calling for transformation?
- To what extent might you be holding on to something from the past?
- Is there some part of your life or a memory that you need to let go of, say goodbye to or surrender?
