    All things change and change is all there is. We often want things to be otherwise, but such thinking is one of our deepest problems. Dealing with this is one of the most important aspects of the path and one we especially need to tackle when things are going well for us, to help us when stuff happens, good or bad.

    I agree, everything is fluid, ever changing…to think otherwise is to delude one’s self.

    You're right. Change is always with us, and we cannot control events.
    We can only choose how we view them.
