Yoga Sutra of Patanjali II.15
-Because the sorrow in the continual transformation of the world-ground, in the anguish and in the subliminal-activators and on the account of the conflict between the movements of primary-constituents--to the discerner all is but sorrow.-
"Nature is continually transforming itself and offers man no foothold. Change is the very essence of conditioned existence. Our need for security is therefore destined to remain unfulfilled. Below the surface of pleasant or unpleasant experiences lie a basic anxiety and anguish which are common to all men. The very impermanence of pleasure is itself experienced as sorrowful."
