everything changes, everything is real

The dance of process, continuous change, and boundless creative vitality is what is ultimately real; and we are born with the potential for knowing it directly -- and most directly in the most ordinary moments of our daily lives. 

As some Zen practitioners put it, everything is interconnected; therefore, if one thing is real, everything is real. 

So attend wholly to the one thing before you, and it will make all the rest of the universe stop reeling and become real again. 

And the radiance of the entire universe will dwell in that one small thing.
