Friends:

The Internal Sensors are Fragile, Decaying and Vanishing!



At Savatthi The Blessed Buddha said this:
Bhikkhus, the eye is impermanent! What is impermanent is suffering!
What is suffering is no-self! What is no-self should be seen as it really is
with correct, true, relevant and realistic understanding thus:
This is not mine, this I am not, this is not my self...
The ear is impermanent.... The nose is impermanent....
The tongue is impermanent.... The body is impermanent....
The mind is impermanent. What is impermanent is ultimately suffering...
What is suffering is no-self. What is no-self should be seen as it really is
with correct, true, relevant and realistic understanding thus:
This is neither me, nor mine, this I am not, this is not my self!
Seeing this, Bhikkhus, any educated Noble Disciple is disgusted with
the eye, the ear, the nose, the tongue, the body, and with the mind...
The experience of this disgust, brings disillusion and disenchantment!
Through this disillusion, the mind is all released! When it is liberated,
then there appears this assurance: "This mind is irreversibly freed" and
one instantly understands: Rebirth is now ended, this Noble Life is fully
concluded, done is what should be done, there is no state beyond this...
