The ancient masters said we should try to abide in impermanence. How is that possible? The answer is to keep creating a better future. Each moment is your creation, so the best way to abide in impermanence is to change for the better.
Phenomena are prints of our mind. Realize the mind through the form. The better the mind is, the better the phenomena are; the better the phenomena are, the better the mind will be.
When we encounter obstacle in life, at that right moment, we should check ourselves to see if our thoughts, concepts, or actions are right; and how and why do we cause the problems.
