The Creativity of Impermanence.

Impermanence is not merely the doctrine that all that arises must pass away. It is the profound realisation that both the emptiness from which the world arises and the world itself are both impermanent states.

The emptiness is as impermanent as the existence it creates.
In the midst of emptiness we find a thing; in the midst of things we find nothing.

Emptiness and fullness are the breaths of existence.
They are the rise and fall of reality, the Father and Mother of every moment.

Things are neither trapped in Samsara nor lost in Nirvana. They are impermanent which means that they are not one or the other, but both: ‘form as emptiness, emptiness as form’ as Nagarjuna wrote.

Both Nirvana and Samsara are impermanent.

Existence is non-dual.

Everything that arises passes away into……this, this, this.
