What is Change?


What
You call change
Is
Simply
The
Unfolding
Of
What Is,
And
What Is
Is
 'Eternal'.

It is this
Eternal Moment.

The
Eternal Moment
Has
No
Beginning
And
No
End

. . . therefore . . .

It
Does
Not
Change

. . . although . . .

It
May
Appear
To!

Change is the only constant, right?

The paradox here is that change is only an appearance . . it appears that everything is changing externally, but the centre of 'Life's Dynamo' is perfectly Still, it does not move.
When one is centred in the stillness of being, one sees through the surface, one cuts through, transcends and moves beyond the external to discover that change is not the only constant at all. No . .

The Eternal Moment, 
that which is without beginning or end,
is the only constant.

All else is simply
Appearance.

  2. Hi Shinzen David,

    Nice to see you back here, and thanks for the comment, always appreciated.

    Decision making is an interesting topic, and I would just like to comment on that, if you don't mind. Most people 'think' they are the decision maker, others realise that 'The Moment' just 'is', and what unfolds as 'this' is the will of 'The Moment'.

    One doesn't have to make decisions when one simply is 'The Moment'. When I and the moment are one, decisions literally take care of themselves. ;-)

  3. Hey, I just posted about "change" myself :D

    nice explanation on change and stillness... indeed change is simply in forms, while the soul is perfectly still.
