Excerpt from: Living as a River by Bodhipaksa

In studies it has been found

that we frequently

try to find something unchanging and reliable

with which to identify,

something that acts like a secure island

in the midst of a river of change.

Often what we cling to is an

ideology,

or a religious…identity,

or a sense of…belonging

to a group or nation.

This response is one of fear and clinging.

We see change around us and we’re afraid…

and we try to find something to cling to—

something more permanent and stable than ourselves.
