Everything is changing – Swami Rama
The aspirant knows that everything in the external world is subject to change. On some level the objects of the world have value and are apparently real, but, in actuality they do not exist as they are. Their form changes, and, therefore their names change and their qualities also change. When an aspirant adjusts himself to this realization, he practices his sadhna by understanding the apparent reality and does not become attached to the phenomenal world or waste his time in acquiring more worldly objects than the bare necessities.
To have only the bare necessities of life can become a means on the path of enlightenment.
