Personal Development, Spiritual Growth


Impermanence; the Buddhist idea that all existence is in flux, as in human aging - the cycle of birth, death, and rebirth. Anicca teaches that everything is transitory and therefore any attachment is fruitless and will lead to suffering. One’s thoughts and feelings are a good example of anicca; these are constantly changing, moving, flowing; one thought leads to another, one feeling opens to others that follow. Figuratively, the action of time is compared to a moving chariot wheel, which touches the ground one point at a time; an ever-flowing mountain stream, a bubble, a bouncing ball, or the sound of a bell. Introspectively one can verify the truth by observing that one's thoughts and feelings never remain the same but are in perpetual flux; that is, the extreme brevity of a single thought that never persists but always leads to another thought. Analytically, "impermanence" is to be observed in the fact that all things exists in dependence on something else, arise out of and become something else; no thing exists in isolation, no thing possesses stability
