Impermanence

Impermanence-Rebekah-Farr-Painter

One of the greatest gifts we can offer people is to embody nonattachment and nonfear.

This is a true teaching, more precious than money or material resources.

Many of us are very afraid, and this fear distorts our lives and makes us unhappy.

We cling to objects and to people like a drowning person clings to a floating log.

Practicing to realize nondiscrimination, to see the interconnectedness and impermanence of all things, and to share this wisdom with others, we are giving the gift of nonfear.

Everything is impermanent.

This moment passes.

That person walks away.

Happiness is still possible.
