Everything your mind generates appears and disappears simultaneously. Thoughts, feelings and phenomena appear and disappear simultaneously. Consider the sound that occurs as I clap my hands. Now, let go of the sound. Why do you have to let it go? After all, the sound disappears the instant it appears. You have to let it go, because you cannot hold on to it. The same is true of reality, which changes constantly. Suffering is the result when we attempt to hold on to what cannot be grasped. You try to hold on to your definition of reality. It will never work. However, if you can drop your definition, you will know what it means to let go and be free.
