But In The End

Linkin Park’s ‘In the End’ has a part that can ‘accidentally’ seem Zenny upon reinterpretation:

I tried so hard
And got so far
But in the end
It doesn’t even matter

I had to fall
To lose it all
But in the end
It doesn’t even matter

If despite your many efforts, they don’t seem to bear fruits in the exact way you hoped, it really doesn’t matter. Even if you did not change the situation adequately, what matters is having done your best, which surely changes you for the better, which helps you to handle similar or worse situations better. Even if you fall and seem to lose it all, it really doesn’t matter because you gain an equivalent, if not, greater lesson instead. In the end? There is no real end, be it good or bad, that matters, because the only true endless end that matters is Buddhahood. The rest is just part of the path.

  1. No matter how hard and how much we try on other paths of pursuit, dun lose sight of the dharma, the only path that remains open when the rest are gone after we are gone. The path of the dharma accompanies us when alive and lead us to shores of peace when we are gone. Stay focused for we only have a pair of legs that can only be on one path at any one time.
