Nothing in life is forever. Life is constantly influx, volatile, and impermanent. We waste the prime years of our lives toiling for impermanent materialistic gains. We build our castles upon a foundation of sand. Nothing is without a price in life. Our fleeting and empty gains are paid with Karmic entanglements that keeps us withing Samsara. In the end, the material universe we created disintegrates and dissolves into water flowing down the drain. 

"Nothing in life is forever. Life is constantly influx, volatile, and impermanent."

The "Stream" video essay gives me the similar feelings to watching the construction then destruction of a sand mandala. Watching the progression of this liquid universe reminds me that life so perishable and short-lived. I am resolved to focus on living every moment in the present and chart the life path toward spiritual freedom. In the end, only the attainment of Inner Peace within Enlightenment is truly enduring and boundless.

There are a myriad of means to facilitate the study and practice of the Dharma. It is vital to not be caught in the whirlwind of the concrete words and the varied conveyance methods. It is critical to not let the concrete agent distract from the transmission of The Teaching.--ZenMoon

We are truly the product of our own past deeds. We based our perception of the world on our collective consciousness. In the present, we shape our upcoming present, the future.--ZenMoon
