RE: At the belfry of Bongeunsa
An interesting post, @slowwalker - seeing the past in terms of the present and then the past in terms of the eternal.
The slope of the temple roof mirrors the mountains but the modern buildings point skyward as the decorative sculpture at the peak.
Everything changes as the ancient Greeks wrote - all is flux. Heraclitus, one of their wise philosophers said, you can't step into the same river twice.
Taking tea and watching the clouds and people passing by puts one in a reflective and meditative mood - the perfect mental state for contemplating the significance of change.
Have a good day, my friend :)
