Impermanence The things that have come into being change continually. ~Augusto Roa Bastos No feeling is final. ~Rainer Maria Rilke You do not suffer because things are impermanent. You suffer because things are impermanent and you think they are permanent. ~Thich Nhat Hanh The art of life is constant readjusting to your surroundings. ~Kazuko Okokaura This existence of ours is as transient as autumn clouds. To watch the birth and death of beings is like looking at the movements of a dance. A lifetime is like a flash of lightning in the sky, Rushing by like a torrent down a steep mountain. ~Buddha I see the world in very fluid, contradictory, emerging, interconnected terms, and with that kind of circuitry I just don’t feel the need to say what is going to happen or will not happen. ~Jerry Brown Life is never stagnation. It is constant movement, unrhythmic movement, as well as constant change. Things live by moving and gain strength as they go. ~Bruce Lee There is nothing permanent except change. ~Heraditus We cling to our own point of view, as though everything depended on it. Yet our opinions have no permanence; like autumn and winter, they gradually pass away. ~Chuang Tzu Healing and positive life change comes from having the courage and spiritual conviction to look squarely at life’s impermanence. ~Meredith Young Souwers Everything flows and nothing abides, everything gives way and nothing stays fixed. ~Heraclitus Without accepting the fact that everything changes, we cannot find perfect composure. But unfortunately, although it is true, it is difficult for us to accept it. Because we cannot accept the truth of transience, we suffer. ~Shuryu Suzuki Change is not merely necessary to life, it is life. ~Alvin Toffler Knowing all objects to be impermanent, let not their contact blind you, resolve again and again to be aware of the Self that is permanent. ~Sri Tirumalai Krhishnamacharya The rhythm of my heart is the birth and death of all that are alive. ~Thich Nhat Hanh It is only form that changes not essence. ~Ram Dass The most fatal illusion is the settled point of view. Since life is growth and motion, a fixed point of view kills anobody who has one. ~Brooks Atkinson We must take change by the hand or change will take us by the throat. ~Winston Churchill Nothing rests; everything moves; everything vibrates. ~The Kybalion If you realize that all things change, there is nothing you will try to hold onto. ~Zen proverb Without accepting the fact that everything changes, we cannot find perfect composure. ~Daisetz Teitaro Suzuki Formation, transformation Eternal mind’s recreation. ~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe Nothing in the world is permanent, and we’re foolish when we ask anything to last, but surely we’re still more foolish not to take delight in it while we have it. ~W. Somerset Maugham Everything is passing … enjoy its momentariness. ~Mooji Life is like an ever-shifting kaleidoscope–a slight change, and all patterns alter. ~Sharon Salzberg When the winds of change blow, some people build walls and others build windmills. ~Chinese proverb Nature is ever at work building and pulling down, creating and destroying, keeping everything whirling and flowing, allowing no rest but in rhythmical motion, chasing everything in endless song out of one beautiful form into another. ~John Muir Whatever comes, don’t push it away. When it goes, do not grieve. Everything is coming and going. Just like the clouds floating by. They just come and go. Stay only as unmoving Awareness. ~Mooji Some changes look negative on the surface but you will soon realize that space is being created in your life for something new to emerge. ~Eckhart Tolle When one perceives impermanence, the perception of no-self is established. With perception of no-self, the concept of “I” is eliminated, and this is nirvana here and now. ~The Buddha When man accepts finally that he cannot make sense out of life on the basis of anything fixed, then and only then can life make sense! ~Ramesh S. Balsekar
