MONO NO AWARE
Mono no aware is a key term in Japanese culture and refers to the bittersweet realisation of the ephemeral nature of all things.
The impact of this philosophical perspective is to recognise the impermanence of everything that exists and to create a deeper appreciation and connection with it by recognising its temporary nature. Everything is ultimately fleeting and eventually transformed with the passage of time.
IT IS BUT A FLEETING THING
Impermanence is a feature of everything that lives. Change is the law of the universe. All things, feelings, and states pass away and are not permanent or graspable.
