All things that come into life must one day pass away. Most of us try to avoid this inevitable truth of life. But an interesting thing happens when we accept and embrace it.

Suddenly what is alive becomes more alive because we are aware that it will not last forever. Everything in our life becomes more precious. Our gratitude and love expand.

In fact, the entire quality of our life improves greatly simply because we are no longer struggling against the truth of life but flowing with it.

And maybe, when it is our time to move on, we can also do that gracefully and with gratitude and love, just like this little leaf.

If you have witnessed a passing like that yourself, you know what a beautiful, inspiring and precious gift it is to all who remain behind.
