a simple truth about stress

Jon Kabat-Zinn:

“… stress really has to do with wanting things to stay the same when they are inevitably going to change. The law of impermanence basically rules the universe and so things are never constant; they’re continually changing. And if you want to hold them a particular way, you can do it for short periods of time at tremendous cost, but ultimately things change… And if you don’t recognize that, then you’re going to create a lot of suffering for yourself and other people.”
