i am a stone at the bottom of the cascading stream, smoothed by its invisible elemental cool fingers. i am the sky in the water, the water in the sky, the many in the one & the one within the many. i am the music of the water splashing & tumbling over the shoulders of the bowing hills, & rejoicing. i am speech & the subtle space between the streaming words. i am the silence & the fragrance of the peaceful heart. i am an expression of You, Shiva, discovering again my personal absence in Your holy presence.
