In my view, there are three things to be done (realized): To recognize, deeply feel, and accord with Impermanence. Then, and only then, is it possible to find out Who and What we are (transcending Impermanence). Finally, after realizing the above two, to go into the marketplace and work with people. This is “merging Sense with Essence.”

From my standpoint, these are the three steps on the way. Techniques will vary, but the objectives are the same. And, in these ways, we transcend greed, anger, and delusion.

Eternity is in this moment.
