Part of this practice is normalizing the particular truth that impermanence is found in everything. Nature is impermanent. Everything about us is impermanent. We see this in really simple ways, like looking at the breath, or what’s going on in the mind. We also see it in more difficult mind states and body experiences. Through practice, we stretch our ability to find some okayness with all of it—that within the instability of life, there’s a place to find ease, a place to rest.
