Three Stages Of Perceiving Impermanence


On Dec 8, 2018 david doane wrote:

My reflection:  I am very aware that change is constant and nothing is permanent.  This life and every aspect of life is impermanent.  That's how life is.  We abide in impermanence, know it or not, and to a great degree I abide in awareness of the impermanence of life.  Awareness of impermanence makes acceptance of even harsher kinds of impermanence easier for me.  Harsher kinds of impermanence currently in the foreground of my life are my declinig abilities and to a greater degree serious illnesses and deaths of loved ones.  Awareness of and acceptance of impermanence are comforting for me, bring me peace, and in that sense are at least at times meditating me, eliminating unnecessary fretting, getting me to basic being.
