This Short Dance

“It is the recognition that all created things pass, and what matters then is not how much we collect or what we make or do, but how we live this short dance, and how well we learn to love.”

~from Seeking the Heart of Wisdom: The Path of Insight Meditation by Goldstein & Kornfield

{“it” refers to rapture, defined in this book as “learning to live and practice with a light heart”}
