It's all temporary.
What do you mean by 'there'? Think about it. Are you talking about a city? The planet?
Are you perhaps pointing to life itself? The Universe? Eternity?
Are these just concepts to you, or are you actually exploring them, in however a small way?
How about your own imagination, thoughts, process?
Youth is temporary bodily quality. You will experience it over and over again, in every incarnation (of course it's debatable where 'youth' begins and
ends, so very short incarnations might be excluded).
Man is the same - only temporary. You are not 'man', you are not 'young', that's what the body you currently have is.
Do you have any idea how fleeting 'currently' is? You are like a ball that's been thrown high into the air - at first, you just go upwards, and enjoy
it, then your speed starts to drop, and for awhile - a very SHORT awhile, that can feel like it goes on forever (but it doesn't) - you are 'still'.
There you are, in the air, pondering what's life. You don't see the upcoming fall, even when you begin the descent, because it's gradual, and time
feels 'slowed down'.
Right now, you are that ball at its peak, high in the air - you have no answers, you feel like 'youth will go on forever' - time seems to be standing
still, and you are free to ponder the future.
Without asking for permission, however, and quicker than you think, now that you are in the stillness called 'youth', where time has no meaning and
aging is just some 'future concept', a mental construct, and has nothing to do with you, as the ball doesn't even anticipate a 'fall', as it's not yet
falling, it's just enjoying the scenery and being up there.
You forget that you must go back to the hand that threw you up in the air - you have to fall to do that.
What is there for a young man? You seem to have at least 'process'. You are processing something, so you are active. Something is happening.
Enjoy the scenery while you can, before the inevitable descent begins. Don't be in a hurry to figure it all out. A big part of life is being in the
process of trying to figure out things. You can't always find the final answers and put everything to rest. You need to keep exploring, and the
answers will change. Your perspective changes, as your chakras open up while others close, and your viewpoint and experiences mold your values and
understanding of reality.
Life is not a textbook you can just fill with the right answers and close, and then go sip margaritas in the Universe.
It's an arduous process that doesn't always give you the easy answers, but when it gives you answers, it's something you can't put to words, and no
one outside of you can understand.
Enjoy the journey, even the fall can be fun if you take it the right way.
It is, indeed, a beautiful fall this year, the leaves are red, orange, yellow and other bright shades.
