“If you don’t like where you are, then MOVE….you are not a tree.”
“Suzuki Roshi, I’ve been listening to your lectures for years,” a student said during the question and answer time following a lecture, “but I just don’t understand. Could you just please put it in a nutshell? Can you reduce Buddhism to one phrase?”
Everyone laughed. Suzuki laughed.
“Everything changes,” he said. Then he asked for another question.
One of the foremost teachings in Buddhism is that everything in life is impermanent. Knowing this truth, we can change our circumstances anytime, no matter where we are, no matter what is happening to us. How? By changing our thoughts about the situation. 🙂
“Thanks to impermanence, everything is possible.” Thich Nhat Hanh
