Everything in this world is fleeting. People, events and problems come and go. We are apt to get wrapped up in the small problems of our daily life. Yet, it sometimes is helpful to remember a sense of perspective. Some trees are 500 years old, how many things have come and gone in that time? Empires have risen, fallen and new countries emerge. Sometimes, in this world, falsehood triumphs for a period of time, but every tyrant has eventually fallen. The tree remains constant, in the fleeing life. As Sri Chinmoy says:
“O tall tree,
You remind me
That everything on earth
Is astonishingly temporal.
