We understand conceptually that everything is changing, even the stars and the earth. But can we perceive impermanence in a profound and immediate way? Until we understand our false assumptions about reality, and that we are all attributing all sorts of solidity and stability. Where there isn’t any, we won’t experience the underlying peacefulness inherent in our hearts. When we see clearly the ever-changing nature of all conditioned phenomena, including our thoughts, feelings, emotions, and perceptions of self and other, the futility of grasping for certainty becomes obvious. In letting go we know freedom. Taking the insight of impermanence to heart will have a revolutionary impact on our lives.
