Easy for you to say, part II

My daily Hindu scrpture says:

“All things arise,
Suffer change,
And pass away.

This is their nature.

When you know this,
Nothing perturbs you,
Nothing hurts you.

You become still.

It is easy.”

-Ashtavakra Gita 11:1

I beg to differ. Wrestling with one’s own temporality and mortality is not easy! How come I never disagree with my daily Xn scripture reading? Maybe I am not paying close enough attention…
