Each occurrence in life is as if it were a bubble, it arises from nothing and returns to nothing, but regardless of what occurs it will only last a certain amount of time as this too shall pop.
I can remember as a child being fascinated with blowing bubbles and even today if someone is blowing bubbles I will look at them. To me life is like a bubble, it begins its existence from nothing and through a process, a bubble is formed. It will last as long as conditions allow it to and then just like that it will pop. No bubble or life will last forever.
Each occurrence in life is as if it were a bubble and regardless of what occurs, it will only last a certain amount of time until it pops. This is one of the reasons a person always needs to look and reach for the next thing, whether it’s in the form of a book, promotion at work, lover, a degree, health remedy, some form of attire, food, drugs, alcohol, a bet, and so on, even when the thing is gotten (the bubble is made) it will soon pop. Everything reached for is as if it were a bubble and although one can be fascinated with them, they will not last, no matter how much one wants them to.
Just think about it, bubble after bubble (life occurrences) arise from nothing and pop as they return to nothing. This constantly occurs throughout one’s life until the last bubble pops which is life itself, but it’s no different than the other bubbles. It arose from nothing, manifested, and returns for whence it came. The key here is to truly understand the correlation between these two and to fascinated with each and every bubble (occurrence) knowing in one’s heart that although they’re all a part of the natural process of life, this too shall pop.
