Ive read that everything is impermanent, because everything is made up by atoms that are in constant flow of becoming and disapering. But still I dont understand how to think about it. Why is it bad to like pleasure and want to stay away from suffering? Isnt it in our nature to want to make things better for ourself? What do you tell yourself when you feel desire or aversion?
How about feelings. We shouldn't react and put labels on events. What does that mean? Does it mean that we should go around like robots and never express our feelings? Should we be indifferent to everything that happens? What do you tell yourself when you feel a feeling?
