Holding on to Impermanence

Now here, of course,

the Buddha’s teaching on impermanence,

in regards to these five aspects of what we call ‘me’.

is at the very core of the teaching,

it is very important,

and it’s good for us to understand that.

 

That, in the end, when we perfect this skill

of ‘letting go’, always,

of hindrances,

of unwholesome states,

attachments,

preferences,

judgments,

opinions…

name it..

 

What is there to hold onto afterward?

And so, when there’s nothing to hold,

well, then you see how everything is just passing by,

so, there is really just this constant letting go.

 

So, it’s the result and also the practice of ‘letting go.’

 

This is very profound.
