Koan #9

The wave and
the sea are One.

Our seemingly separate life is like an individual wave that rises and falls on the great sea of existence. Like a wave, we are propelled forward by the powerfull currents of life.

If we only experience the surface of things, we will live like a wave, pushed around by invisible currents and regularly crashed down onto the rocky shore line. But if we choose the depths where motion slows down and the silence sets in, we will sense the connectedness and the Oneness of all beings.

Waves come and go, but the ocean remains…
