this life

this life, an ephemeral dream
holds nothing in esteem –
not love, not death, not time.
its unfathomable origination
a mere playground of creation.

The changingness of life is an important idea in Buddhism. Nothing escapes. Everything in this world changes, making life appear more like a passing dream than anything substantial.
The buddhists make a practice of accepting change as an inherent nature of reality. Accepting what comes, and releasing what goes, we neither seek what is not there, nor do we resist what is already there. This is the way to peace.

If it changes, can it be truth ?
