Permanence belongs to God and His Creations, not the world. Anything that is not permanent was not created by God, thus this world, this illusion, was not created by Him. You were created by Him, for you are an act of Love. You are a Love thought that will last for eternity. This world, and everything in it, will disappear in to the nothingness from which it was created. Thus if you put your faith or trust in anything of this world, you will always be disappointed and depressed. Put your faith in what is Real --- His Love. Love is all that exists. When you walk through this illusion, be in the world but not of it. Every act of Love that you give to others is permanent. It will be recorded for eternity, always remembered by the whole of Creation.
