To ride phenomena - Battlecry of Freedom

To ride phenomena

Phenomena manifest in particular forms, shapes, and colours; at particular times; in particular places; and are experienced by particular minds. Then phenomena change, move, or cease, and perceivers’ experience changes, moves or ceases. This is the dreamlike nature of phenomena. 

To ride phenomena as they arise—like dreams, changing, moving, and ceasing—is to awaken. To attempt to fix phenomena in particular forms beyond the moment of their arising, is to lose the experience of riding, and therefore the potential of awakening.
