- No coming can last together.
It will always end in separation.
"Whatever affectionate relationships we now enjoy,
Teachers and disciples, masters and servants, brothers and sisters, husbands
and wives, father and son, mother and daughter.
There is no way we can avoid being separated in the end.
We cannot even be sure that death or some terrible event might not suddenly
part us right now.
We had better avoid anger and quarrels, harsh words and fighting.
We never know how long we might be together, so we should develope our minds
to be caring and affectionate for the short while that we have left."
From my own experience,while I am developing my mind towards the 4 boundless
qualities-love,compassion,sympathetic joy,equanimity. I find myself to have
this common mistake of developing loving kindness for " all beings " but
sometimes act impatiently and unkindly to my own family members. I hope this
contribution will be approve and helpful to people.Thank you and have a nice
