Rain, Waves, Ocean

All phenomena can be known in different ways:

-Raindrops falling and dissolving into the vastness of ocean…

-Waves of localized motion unceasingly rising out of and falling back into the expansive waters…

-The depths of emptiness that underpins all action and intention.

We can be known to ourselves as rain when we are in life; as waves when we are imprisoned; as the ocean when we taste freedom.

A tablespoon of salt is unpalatable. Dissolved in a Great Lake, it is unnoticeable. We are like that: at once a unit of identity and a dispersed whole; the material center of our experienced universe and the ubiquitous center of an open circle.

Seeing this is freedom from entanglement;

Living this is the Way.
