Water flows to the lowest level
in this place.
It also evaporates and ascends to the highest level
of its potential.
And as water, so too with Consciousness...
Water may change its form, but its essence remains the same.
So too is the way of Consciousness...
Water is most useful when it is moving,,,
Yet so beautiful when it is perfectly still...
As in a clear pond.
And there is Consciousness at work and at play.
And there is Consciousness that is still and quiet.
From this still and quiet place, we see that everything is in flux.
And we are carried away in it.
Sometimes as it.
But never of it.
And there is an Ocean of Bliss that is endless.
And such an Ocean refuses no river.
Swim in the river and you may tire and drown.
But let the river carry you and surely the Ocean awaits.
And the rocks are sharp.
And the waterfalls steep.
And this is a danger to everything but the river itself.
Swim to the shore and sit on the banks?
And save your "self".
And be content just to watch the river go by.
Or, be the water.
And meet that Ocean.
That clever "self" on the shore, the one that navigates, cannot help you here.
Be the water, rushing violently at times over razor sharp rocks.
And know that its essence is always at ease.
The Essence is always at ease.
