About Impermanence (2008-2010)
This is the second part of my Life series.
There is nothing we can get hold of in our lives. Just as the sunset, I cannot stop even a bit. So what is eternity?
The “colours” we see, are formed by the joint of fates of the sky, the earth and the human beings. These colours change, sometimes rapidly and sometimes slowly, so they come in an ever-changing form. It is like people would meet and separate because of the change of fate. To be impermanent is the law of the world. As a result, I, who am still alive, understand that nothingness is existence. The lives of us are like the colours in the sky, impermanence is the nature of eternity.
Every time when there is change in my life, I look above to the sky, different colours would appear in front of me. These colours became the mark of my life.
