“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Buddhist Permanence

Charles Nelson asks: “If everything is impermanent, why seek enlightenment?”

That's a common mistake that tends towards nihilism. 

Enlightened mind is permanent. 

For instance, my Buddhist refuge name is Gyurme Chöga, which means Changeless Dharma Joy

It's a Dzogchen thing, you wouldn't understand : )
