The monk asked Dalong:“Master, all tangible things will pass away, but is there an eternal truth? ”“Yes, there is. Like wild flowers that bloom so beautifully, resembling a silk brocade. Like a seemingly placid stream that is actually flowing.”Long answered.

 Flowers are quick to wither, yet the cycle will always remain; water may move, but the surface of the stream will never change. The meaning of life lies in the process of living- change is the only thing that never changes. (From Zen Stories: Mountain Flowers Blossom Like Brocade)
