the pendulum swings back and forth.
with each consecutive swing it leaves one top point and decends back away and rushes headlong toward the other side.
just like life.
humans are busy trying to grab the pendulum at the point they are most comfortable.
if they succeed that is the moment they begin to die.
they must let the pendulum swing.
over to pleasure and comfort and joy........and then back away from all that is good and familiar and right.........and headlong toward the pain and destruction once again.
we can`t stop it swinging anyway.
it`s bigger than all our efforts put together.
so just relax and enjoy the motion of the swinging as it effortlesly rises and falls.
and remember; all things must pass.
