Because without impermanence
Emptiness is impermanence, it is change.
We should not complain about impermanence,
because without impermanence, nothing is possible.
I am not a spiritual person. I do not believe in a God, or a spirit, or an afterlife. But I can see the beauty and truth in the above Buddhist quote, and I feel its weight. It is incredible to me how emotional I have been tonight after learning about the death of Steve Jobs. It is fortunate for the 21st century that we had Steve as long as we did, but I will not complain about impermanence. It is what allows the future to happen.
Thanks for showing us your vision of the future, Steve. I look forward to seeing what is possible next.
