物の哀れ – Mono no Aware

無常 - mujō

無常 - mujō

Translating “Mono no Aware” loosely as a “sensitivity of ephemera” I think we sometimes forget at how fragile, how transient we are as human beings. We attach so much importance to things, we worry about things that really don’t matter, we have to have the latest in fashion etc…maybe we need to concentrate more on the mujō, the impermanence, of our existence. Maybe that would help us to focus on the things in life that really are important.
