Why Nothing is Best

There is no best song, no best idea, no one best way to do things.

The nature of the universe is to constantly change, to adapt, to evolve.

If there were one best song, why write another?

If there were one best idea, you'd never need to think again.

Stagnation leads to decay.

Avoid attachment and clinging, participate in the ever-changing river of life.

The human mind has developed to take note of new things and pay special attention to them, until they are no longer new...pushing us on... evolving forever.

Zen Presence - Ideas for Meaningful Living


  1. "Constantly change, to adapt, to evolve." Beautifully written, Dan, and so true. Once I started accepting this, I started living.

  2. Loving it, Dan. Really resonates big with me. I feel as if I never get stuck any more. Always forward.

  3. Hi Dan, another great piece of wisdom. I can use that wisdom.

  4. Dan, attachment is the biggest problem I have faced, that and guilt over not wanting the responsibility for things I was given. Once I let go of that I was able to move forward and embrace change and the unexpected.
