“When we practice meditation correctly, we lose our feeling of confusion and of being compelled, and instead, our meditation brings a sense of openness, freedom, and clarity. We see that clinging to any particular object or person ignores the fact that the object or person is constantly changing.
Not only does everything change, but everything is also interdependent. There is no object that is independent from and totally unrelated to everything else.
According to our ordinary perception, we see phenomena as solid or substantial. But for someone who has attained the subtle view of impermanence, phenomena are not substantial. In the state of luminous-emptiness, there is no reason to cling or be attached. Clinging ceases to exist. Instead, there is a total acceptance of the fact that everything is changing.”
