Forces work upon each other in remarkable ways. The water laps against the rock, aided by time immemorial and turns it to sand. The wind courses across the river and lifts the waves into the sky. Clouds, heavier than mountains drift until they must let their content fall upon the earth.
It is easy to forget that this process is constant and part of the dynamic course of life. That even when we are content, we must prepare for what we have gathered together to pass away from us and radiate into the universe. It can be difficult to allow this to happen, but without this movement, there is aught but stagnation and death.
To allow this momentum to work on oneself is especially difficult. To relinquish the illusion of constancy and control to the chaos that surrounds us is by no means simple, but it can allow for new and critical truths to become plain. The same wind that lift the river to become a cloud can dry tears, too.
