Impermanence

In the wilderness stars come to life with clouds of radiance shining brightly above our heads. Stars light the sky beyond the horizon reflecting agelessness, returning night after night a beacon of permanence. Stars in the night sky were here long before us. Before humankind could grunt an emotion, these same stars looked upon our evolution. Name a person in history and we can say with assurance that we in our century share a common witness. Stars, however, have a life span…and who’s to say that the light we think we share is merely a reflection of a star long dead sharing it’s memory of life through the timelessness of space; the impermanence of reality, the permanence we think we know might rest in the unknown.

How does impermanence walk with the spirit, and what does it say?
