“Every moment of life is a parting with the moment just past. Moment by moment, the present becomes the past even as, moment by moment, it moves into the future. In Buddhism we call this change a repetitive cycle of birth and death. Every moment is change. Whether the change is for good or bad depends on the encounters that each of us has with karma. An encounter is a situation that brings about some change in us, in accordance with our karma and the karma of each moment, which in Japanese is called en. When our encounter with en goes well, change will be for the good. When the encounter goes badly, change will be for the worse. Change is regulated by the strict law of dependent origination, which defines the interdependent relationships among phenomena in our daily lives. We tend to think of it, however, as something capricious and unpredictable, to be feared more often than welcomed.”  Nikkyo Niwano
