life is ephemeral

life is ephemeral
and find its meaning
in its traceless flight.

Everything of this world is transitory and temporary. Only the ego wants things to be permanent and unchanging, because it is afraid of dying. The ego finds comfort in asserting its own existence, and that is all it does throughout our lives. We try to prove that “Yes, I am someone”.
That is why enlightenment is called “ego’s biggest disappointment”. Awakening to the true reality means melting the illusory ego, or that sense of “i am a separate self”. It is a long and arduous process, including shedding all the layers of what we falsely call ‘me’. What is left is life itself, which needs no purpose outside itself.
