To the question ‘What are bubbles?‘ perhaps we can find the answer in life itself, made up of pleasure and pain.
If life seems perfect right now then that’s great. According to author Richard Bach, “the best way to pay for a lovely moment is to enjoy it.”
Hoping it never ends, however, is akin to holding the bubble in our hands and wishing for it to remain intact.
On the other hand, if we are experiencing one of those dark uncomfortable moments, noticing the pleasant can take more energy than we feel we have. Yet we might at least take heart in the fact that also this bubble will burst sooner or later.
As a bubble, life is rarely neither all good nor all bad. Within the beginning lies the end and the end itself is a new beginning. The levels of distress and delight may vary from person to person but that, as they say, is another matter.
