Nothing is Permanent
Probably, except a soul, nothing is permanent. Every thing, changes its shape, size, color & contents every seconds. Every thing goes through a cycle of birth, life and death. Still, human nature is more resistent to changes. We seek permanent things in our temporary life. Do not laugh on people who are going through tough phase of life. You never know when the situation would be reversed.
We like it or not, life is going to go through the cycle of pain and pleasure, day and night, bad and good, life and death, old and new. Once, the great king Akbar asked Birbal and his all ministers, tell me in one sentence which is true at all times. Birbal replied, “This too shall pass”. When you are going through a feeling of pleasure or pain if you remember this sentence, you will be able to develop in mind the feeling of equanimity.

3.Every moment, every thing is changing.
4.We have the power to make favourable changes in our life.
5.Certain universal forces are beyond our control and have positive or negative effects on our life.
