Standing on the bank of a wide river,
The current quickly flows,
Eddies opening, closing, vibrating,
Passing as fear flows against the heart,
Impossibly fast until I cast off the past,
Take the step into moving blue water,
Enter the ever-present flow of life.
Only as I float with the flow,
Become One with the current,
Swept away from certainty,
Take the risk of swimming,
Dive into the nature of life itself,
Fluid, miraculous, alive—
Only then do I surface fully alive.
