This Too Is Passing
Kevin: ‘You can’t take it with you’, ‘This too shall pass’, ‘The only constant is change’, and so on. Impermanence. We understand the idea. Makes sense, right? It’s baked into the condition of life itself! But how much frustration, anxiety, and suffering do we experience because we don’t really accept it? We fight against the arising of unpleasant experiences while desperately clinging to others. Tonight we look past our fixed ideas of self and world, into the ever-fluid activity of sensory experience to know experientially, moment-to-moment, that this too is passing.
