      When you look at the surface of the ocean, you can see waves coming up and going down. You can describe these waves in terms of high or low, big or small, more vigorous or liess vigorous, more beautiful or less beautiful. You can describe a wave in terms of beginning and end, birth and death, more powerful, less powerful, more beatiful, less beautiful, beginning and end and so on.
      Looking deeply, we can also see that the waves are at the same time water. A wave may like to seek its own nature. The wave might suffer from fear, from complexes. A wave may say "Iam not as big as the other waves," " I am opressed," "I am not as beautiful as the other waves," "I have been born and i have to die." The wave may suffer from these things, these ideas. But if the wave bends down and touches her true nature she will realize that she is water. Then her fear and complexes will disappear.
      Water is free from the birth and death of a wave. Water is free from high and low, more beautiful and less beautiful.You can talk in terms of more beautiful or less beautiful, high or low, only in terms of waves. As far as water is concerned, all these concepts are invalid.
      Our true nature is the nature of no birth and no death. We do not have to go anywhere in order to touch our true nature. The wave does not have to look for water because she is water. We do not have to look for God, we do not have to look for our ultimate dimension or nirvana, because we are nirvana, we are God.
      You are what you are looking for. You are already what you want to become. You can say to the wave, "My dearest wave, you are water. You don't have to go and seek water. Your nature is the nature of nondiscrimination, of no birth, of no death, of no being and of no non-being."
-Thich Nhat Hanh

Peace :wink: :grin: :smile: :laugh: :smirk:

My problem is not seeking God, but remembering God...

Very nice post. I love water metaphors.  :smile:

beautiful indeed....

by the way i got myself "living buddha - living christ" on friday and im gonna start reading it soon...  :grin:

i love water metaphores, too... i have a tatoo on my shoulder... it?s a drop falling into water... i dunno if any of you played magic: the gathering a few years ago, but i did... and well in this game the blue magic is the magic of the sould and mind... to me these 2 concepts are what matters, our body is merely a tool... well the symbol of the blue magic is the drop, so the drop symolizes my soul... it is also water, my favorite element and it is every tear i ever cried... obviously im going to have that tattoo for the rest of my life, and when my body dies the tat disappears... the drop fell into the water, i am once again in god... without the boundaries of physical existance...

here?s a not so good picture of the unfinished tatto


and here?s the final version
