Joseph Goldstein – Insight Hour – Ep. 2 – The Wisdom of Impermanence

“Everything changes.” – Suzuki Roshi

Our awareness alone is not sufficient in the search for liberation. We must learn to become present in order to question and further explore the nature of our existence. The investigation becomes a crucial factor in both the cultivation and application of true wisdom. One of the most accessible methods for the development of this wisdom is to practice an increasingly refined awareness of impermanence. This assimilation must move beyond the conceptual knowledge into a realm of direct and immediate experience. The closer we are to the experience of change the more the mind is able to let go.
