We constantly seek security, whether it be money in the bank, owning as opposed to renting or job security. There is safety and comfort in permanence, or at least what we perceive as permanent. There are four factors to consider in our quest for the security of what we consider permanence:
- It indicates that we have no faith in the Divine or Universal Energy in providing for us as it has all along since we were conceived until we decided to take matters into our own hands.
- I feel the pursuit of permanence has an enslaving effect, and temporariness is liberating.
- Life itself is temporary, so it seems illogical to seek permanence in a temporary world.
- In the equation of life, there are many variables, and the only constant is change.
