Everything Changes, Yet There Is A Constant

Heraclitus lived even before Socrates in Ancient Greece. He perceived that everything changes. “You cannot set foot in the same river twice.”

Indeed, we see in our lives constant change. The kids grow. Jobs change. We must learn to adapt and, in this sense, go with the flow.

On the other hand, seen from a different perspective, say from 30,000 feet in an airplane, the river is where it has been more or less for millennia.

While everything changes, the Spirit never changes. It is always around.

We can read the thoughts of humans from 4,000 years ago or even longer and they were in touch with the Spirit.

Everything changes except for the important thing which never changes. The Spirit is a constant.

The need and desire for getting in touch with the Spirit is what makes spiritual practices so foundational.
