The price we have to pay for our endeavors may escalate beyond our control. The pain caused to people may also cause imprints that will take lifetimes to resolve. And after going through one big cycle, the temporary relief of our personal problems will only open the door to invite new ones to enter. It may well seems like we have benefited, but in reality is it really the case? The endless cycles of samsara beckons, unless we break free and come into realization of our true nature.
There is much sadness in this, yet balanced with a feeling of hope. These are but emotions that will pass, but only if we open our hearts.
Nature of life is impermanent, and things will go in the best way that befits the conditions present. If friendships are to be lost in this episode, let it go in the best possible way. In this heart the friendship lives on though, together with the memories of the good times as well as the bad. But this too shall pass, and there will be letting go, for that is the law of impermanence.
At this point, I wish my friends a happy life. One that is filled with blessings, compassion, peace and happiness. And to again share my favorite quote.
May we be happy always.
