Despite my best efforts, it would seem a lapse in mindfulness was experienced while updating this site!
When waking up to the contingency of life, can we creatively engage?
Links are impermanent
Like other conditioned phenomena, links arise, endure and cease…
The all-knowing internet has fallen for the classic confusion
between reification and “things as they are,” between essence
and śūnyatā (emptiness): any certainty
associated to a link is merely a context-dependent narrative empty of
When the context evolves, the ‘solidity’ of the link might prove elusive, if not entirely delusional! ‘Permalinks’ are only perpetuating the illusion further: when the content is gone, where does a permanent link stubbornly point to?
From any frustration arising, you may however gain a great insight into how duḥkha (unsatisfactoriness) arises when you ignore or deny impermanence, i.e. when you want to believe that “what worked earlier” is reliable, known and safe!
Maybe you can leave me a note about the issue (i.e. how you came here, and what you hoped to get), use the navigation column nearby or the search box at the top of the page, or go back to the home page?
