Change is inevitable. In our ever-expanding Universe we can rely solely on the reality that change happens constantly throughout eternity in every moment.
We know this because of simple laws and our understanding of how the Universe works. We can try to capture the moment in a memory, photograph, video or song but even the experience of viewing that moment is changing. Every time we look at the object again our perception has changed and we are not the same person we were when we originally captured that moment so it can never be the same again.
Music has always been a great teacher of change. It is always expanding, always changing in every moment, never the same and demands that you listen to every moment literally as if you have never heard it before, fresh, aware, alert and present.
One of the best tools to experience this constantly changing Universe we live in is Meditation. By being still, focusing on our breath and listening, we relate to this moment as it is. We can watch the subtlety of change and observe it while practicing non attachment.
This allows us to accept the moment purely for what it is, a moment. Then, we can respond to it from a place of understanding that it is impermanent. If we are patient it will change in the next moment, the next pulse, the next note, the next breath, inevitably it will change.
