A man of awareness knows that life is constantly changing. Life is change. There is only one thing permanent and that is change. Everything else except change, changes. To accept this nature of life, to accept this changing existence with all its seasons and moods, this constant flow which never stops for a single moment, is to be blissful; then nobody can disturb your bliss.

It is your hankering for permanency that creates troubles for you. You want to live a life with no change and that is not possible – you are asking for the impossible.

The child will become a young man, the young man will become old. The one who was alive yesterday will be dead today. If you accept all this change, this suchness of things, and you allow it to happen joyously, knowing that’s how life is, then nobody can distract you from your bliss.
