The world around us constantly changes.  Things are coming into being, abiding, and passing away at all times.  All phenomena have their place in the cycles of time.  Cultivating a deep understanding helps us find a peaceful place within during times of change.  Even within our own minds and hearts, there is coming into being, abiding, and passing away.   Whether our hopes and aspirations, our relationships, our priorities, our fears, or our thoughts; these are all ideas and feelings which come and go in time.

The Buddha’s teaching asks us to observe our thoughts as they come and go.   Seize the moment to find the part of our awareness which is the observer, the unchanging Buddha nature within.
