Accepting change

Accepting change

We somehow have to find a way to accept that form is form, impermanence is impermanence, change is change. Change is not something else. So, in a way, it is very simple: we do not have to do anything elaborate or complicated. All we have to do is accept what it is. We do not have to be sophisticated and think ‘Maybe it is not the obvious thing that we see, maybe there is something more’ or ‘Maybe this is not it, because it is too simple’. So we have to find a balance. The real balance is accepting change as change.
