Water Flows On

Water flows on and on but it never flows away.

The moon waxes and wanes, and yet in the end it is the same moon.

If we look at things through the eyes of change, then there is not a single instant of stillness in all creation.

But if we observe the changelessness of things, then we and all beings alike, have no end.
