“The Impermanence of All Things” is a theme that illustrates musically the idea that everything in our world is temporary and subject to change. Whether it’s the physical world around us, the thoughts and emotions that we experience, or the ideas and beliefs we hold dear, nothing stays the same forever.
This theme draws inspiration from various philosophical and religious traditions that emphasize the transience of all things. In Buddhism, for example, the concept of impermanence (or anicca) is a central tenet, which teaches that everything is in a constant state of flux and that attachment to impermanent things leads to suffering.
Let’s celebrate life’s beauty and fragility, and embrace the impermanence that makes it all the more precious.
