Everything we experience in the temporal realm is temporary. Even a fully embodied life ends—albeit fully embodied-ly.
So why seek anything at all?
While the many experiences of earthly life are fleeting, the joys and sorrows they give us are not.
Perhaps this is the point of embodiment? When the Soul is fully landed in the body, it can be impressed—like cheese by a mold—by the sensations and feelings of experience?
Most of all by love of life.
This soul-love, if we reach it, is what we take with us—into the formless, into eternity.
