All Structures are Unstable, made together with Jessica Kelly in 2010 Limerick. Thanks to Daghdha Mentoring Program.
“Once you realize and accept that all structures (forms) are unstable, even the seemingly solid material ones, peace arises within you. This is because the recognition of the impermanence of all forms awakens you to the dimension of the formless within yourself, that which is beyond death. Jesus called it ‘eternal life’.” (Eckhart Tolle)
