Hello Varadhi !
Audio very good here
Thinking about impermanence makes me feel sad, how can i stop that?

Thank you have to go to work!
Q: similar to jenny’s question - is it possible to find stability or constance at all? or are these things found in the dharma?
thank you so much!
Q: I find this very effective with body sensations. It becomes clear that what I call a pain or area of tension is simply a set of sensations in space until I give it a name and solidity. I can't even call it a "set" of sensations because it's constantly changing. So the body is a swirl of sensation onto which I apply names and solidity. How can I do this with vision, though, which makes things seem very solid?
Q: Raising a child feels like low-lying constant light worry, how can we tackle this and let go?
q: tto what degree is a knowingness of birth/rebirth important? is it enough to know this or must we believe it?
Q if the Buddha didn’t mean that impermanence is a part of ultimate reality, what was meant by referring to it a sign of being? What was meant by Being?
Q is the sense of impermanence to do with flow. I had a sense of energy moving and not being fixed…but then in noticing a bad sensation (body tension) it was hard to try not to change it. It was difficult to have another attitude to this
q: how do we know that we are treating correctly on this path?
Q when depressed trying to embody the impermanence of that depression feels harder to cultivate because of the attachment and comfort of the familiar negative. Do you have a way in line with the practice to help let go of that comfort zone? :)
Q when I start to concentrate on my sensations I sometimes get into a physical state that is hot and twitchy, like restless legs. I think it’s energy but it isn’t pleasant energy. Any comments?
Q from Ben: if the Buddha is offering liberation from suffering, is he offering liberation from impermanence?
This is where I find classic meditation a bit limiting when it comes to trauma that lives in the body. I really recommend checking out trauma-sensitive mindfulness
Thank you for this morning xx
Q when I notice a neutral sensation it appears as soon as I notice it to change to be painful or pleasant. I seem to be using the feeling to interpret rather than staying in a neutral expereince?
