The existence and evolution of life is a function of the impermanent nature of all that is. Similarly, an awareness and embrace of the impermanence of all aspects of our lives and the lives around us is essential to the quality of our life experience. Understanding that all pleasant as well as unpleasant experiences are temporary opens the door to meeting each moment with greater equanimity. It allows us to separate the manageable pain of the moment from the overwhelming suffering created by our mind’s story of our past or the anxiety and fear generated by our narratives of the future. Hallelujah impermanence!
