Longchenpa, who founded many Dzogchen lineages, says:

You would like to stay with family and loved ones 
Forever, but you are certain to leave them.
 
 You would like to keep your beautiful home
 Forever, but you are certain to leave it behind.
 
 You would like to enjoy happiness, wealth and comfort
 Forever, but you are certain to lose them.
 
 You would like to keep this excellent human life with its freedoms & advantages
 Forever, but you are certain to die.
 
 You would like study Dharma with your wonderful teacher
 Forever, but you are certain to part.
 
 You would like to be with good spiritual friends
 Forever, but you are certain to separate.
 
 O my friends who feel deep disillusionment with samsara,
 I, the Dharma-less beggar, exhort you:
 From today put on the armor of effort, for the time has come
 To cross to the Land of Great Bliss whence there is no separation.

~via Khenpo Chokey Gyaltsen of Pullahari (Jamgon Kontrul Monastery, Nepal)
