"...it's not impermanence per se...that is the cause of our suffering...Rather it's our resistance to the fundamental uncertainty of our situation. Our discomfort aries from all of our efforts to put ground under our feet, to realize our dream of constant okayness. When we resist change, it's called suffering. But when we can completely let go and not struggle against it, when we can relax into its dynamic quality, that's called enlightenment, or awakening to our true nature, to our fundamental goodness. Another word for this is freedom - freedom from struggling against the fundamental ambiguity of being human. "
