How do we know that our shinay practice is not progressing? It is very simple; it does not occur to us that everything is impermanent. We think, we perceive, we function, we pursue everything in life as we are going to live forever. If we have a little bit of progress in shinay, from time to time, we will remember, we will be aware. And from time to time, we will be able to tell ourselves, hey you, don’t be a fool, enjoy what you have right now. Don’t chase after the rainbow. Life is not very long and you will become old, chasing after the rainbow, you will die chasing after the rainbow. It is just at your sight, but you cannot reach it, because it’s a rainbow. It is impermanent.
