Whether the reality of change is a source of freedom for us or a source of horrific anxiety makes a significant difference.

​”As human beings we are as impermanent as everything else. Every cell in the body is continuously changing. Thoughts and emotions rise and fall away unceasingly. When we’re thinking that we’re competent or that we’re hopeless – what are we basing it on? On this fleeting moment? On yesterday’s success or failure? We cling to a fixed idea of who we are and it cripples us. Nothing and no one is fixed. Whether the reality of change is a source of freedom for us or a source of horrific anxiety makes a significant difference. Do the days of our lives add up to further suffering or to increased capacity of joy? That’s an important question.”

~ Pema Chodron
