The Fourth Insight

Thursday, December 06, 2007

The fourth insight is that change is the only constant. Everything is impermanent. Holding on to anything is like holding on to your breath; if you hold on long enough, you'll suffocate. Ultimately the only way to acquire anything in the physical universe is to let go of it and not hold on.

This is a very delicate point. It means that the best results are achieved when we focus on the process rather than on outcome. Focusing on the outcome creates anxiety and stress, which interferes with the spontaneous flow of intelligence as it moves from Spirit to the material world. The fact that change is the only constant means that we are always living in the unknown.

Everything that we call the known is past, and the only thing we can say about it with certainty is that it is no longer here. The known is the prison of past conditioning. The unknown is always fresh, which is a quality of the field of infinite possibilities. Zen masters, martial artists, and great spiritual teachers have always advised that we must go with the flow. The flow is the field of change. what doesn't change decays and dies. Change is the dance and rhythm of the universe. To have one-pointed intention, to flow with the change, and to be detached from the outcome at the same time: These are the mechanics of the fulfillment of desire.

Change... it's so disturbing when it happens. We want things to get better and at the same time we want them to stay the same.

In order to flow with change, I think it's important to have a life preserver of some sort. For me, change is like white water rafting.... I never want to do it because I can't swim.
