The River Of Feelings

Feelings are born, take shape, last for a few moments, and then disappear. As with the physical form, birth and death of feelings occur in every moment. In meditation, we look mindfully at the river of feelings. We contemplate their arising, their remaining, and their disappearance. We witness their impermanence. When we have an unpleasant feeling, we say to ourselves, “This feeling is in me, it will stay for a while, and then it will disappear because it is impermanent.” Just by seeing the impermanence of feelings in this way, we suffer a lot less. – Thich Nhat Hanh. @thichnhathanhquotecollective #thay #thaysaid #impermanence #thichnhathanhquotecollective #thichnhathanh #buddhistquotes #thichnhathanhquotes
