Sutra: All things arise and pass away. But the awakened awake forever. ~The Dhammapada of Gautama the Buddha, CA 500BC~
Become aware, awake. Then you will see that everything comes and goes, all things come and pass. Life is a flux. Your consciousness is the only thing that is immovable, that is eternal.
To attain it is freedom.
To attain it is the goal of life. If you miss it you have missed your life and you have missed a tremendously great gift, a great opportunity.
