When reading this article about dependent origination (which is core teaching of all Buddhism schools), the statement nothing is permanent got me thinking. If we humans (not you and me but all the others ofcourse) would collectively make this “nothing is permanent” viewpoint part of our lifestyle, then we would probably be better able to conquer the crises we created ourselves. For instance by willingly and massively saying goodbye to our scarcity-driven economic system and replacing it with a new, abundance-driven system. So we can let go of the illusion we call scarcity. And consider it a learning experience for society. Part of humanity’s Karma if you like. And then welcoming abundance driven society thinking. Think about the beautiful things that could happen if we had an abundance-driven system! Happy Karma hunting!
