Contemplating impermanence is a foundational practice in the dharma. It is not only a way of "facing facts," integrating change opens our minds and hearts to the flow of nowness and the beauty of life. Reality becomes a portal to unreality. It allows us to glimpse the open, sky-like source of our experience.
