I’d like to talk about the concept of impermanence. Like everyone else I do not enjoy the feelings of loss and disappointment. Unfortunately, at certain times in our lives we all experience them. These days I am drawn to some degree to Buddhist teachings. One such teaching states that we are all subject to pain, but we need not be subject to suffering. The suffering comes from trying to hold on to things that need, by the natural order of things, to change. Agoraphobics especially dislike change. We like, and think we need to keep things uniform and “in order.” I am trying to do my best to just go with the flow, stay in the present moment and roll with the punches. How about you?
