Virtual Taste of Buddhism with Scott Snibbe: “Nothing Lasts, Everything Changes, How To Embrace Impermanence”
Sunday, March 15, 2020 , 10:30 am – 12:00 pm
We cling to things as if they won’t change, but change is the nature of reality. It’s only a habit of mind that imposes permanence onto people, possessions, feelings, and relationships, causing us pain when these naturally change or end.
All physical things begin, endure, decay, and die: our possessions, homes, buildings, bodies, the environment, and civilization itself. Inside too, our minds are at flux, cycling through thoughts, perceptions, and feelings. We’re never the same person and every moment is new. This lecture and meditation guide us through a technique for aligning our minds with the impermanent nature of reality, from cities to subatomic particles to the mind itself.
