Life Is Ever-Changing Flavors of Perfection

This morning, I woke up with a full bladder, as I often do. I walked to the bathroom feeling the fullness, and with what is often considered pain. As I walked, a thought appeared: “It’s always been like this, and it’s always changing.” As I was peeing, I noticed the texture on the wall behind the toilet. It was all that was happening, well that and the feeling of urinating, and the sound of the pee hitting the water in the toilet. All of that was all that was happening.
