Mastering the Cyclic Nature of Existence

Elena Dovalsantos, USA

Cyclicity is seen at all levels in nature. It is one of the absolutely fundamental laws of the universe. Reincarnation and karma are examples of cycles. Reincarnation allows for progressive evolution for us to achieve our full potential. Karma, on the other hand, serves as the great teacher to spur our development. If we can understand how the law of cycles works, we would see why things are the way they are and what keeps us trapped in the wheel of impermanence. Mastering the cyclic nature of existence means understanding how to better navigate through life, avoid the pitfalls that keep us returning to a world of sorrows, and eventually attain liberation.
