Beyond developing samadhi and mindfulness, we can turn our attention to developing liberating insight. While these are many insights that can come through meditation, the insight around anicca (change), dukkha (unsatisfactoriness) and anatta (non self) address our compulsion to crave and cling.
We get very attached to things as if they were extremely important (e.g. your basketball team winning a championship or a conflict with a friend). However, in the bigger scheme of things all of these seemingly crucial things can be held in the wider, wiser perspective of impermanence. A parable from Buddhist teachings helps illustrate this essence of true equanimity and wisdom.
