The Zen Thinking Podcast — Episode 38 — Accepting Death, Grief & Impermanence

In this week's episode I discuss the natural law of impermanence and how its presence underlies all things.

From our thoughts and feelings, to our possessions and way of life, to the ones we love—no thing can escape death or transitional change.

This episode comes from an incredibly personal place as I just lost one of my best friends only five days ago, Iggy the cat. If you've recently experienced a loss of any kind, I hope you find some peace through these words I share...

The following pieces recently published on Zen Thinking are discussed in this episode:

Your greatest distraction is always yourself

We might appear to be different, but we are not separate

If only now could be forever

Suffering will linger until we have learned all that it has to teach

Dealing with death, loss and grief, and the wisdom it reveals

To understand everything is to forgive everything

Things don’t really exist; they flicker

The fantastic is embedded within the common

Thanks for listening to the show, I hope you enjoyed it.
