Nothing Is Permanent

When you cling to some object, it means you are clinging to yourself at the same time because that object is the projected self. And, if it is good, that attachment will result in some fear because you will try not to lose it. But everything is changing. So even though you cling to it and have fear of losing it, that object will change. Nothing is permanent. — Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture - 67-12-05-A - as found on shunryusuzuki.com edited by PF.
