We Are the Waters of the Great Sea

We are the waters of the Great Sea
Waves brought us here, to these shores
But here we cannot stay, except for a short while
We must return to where we came from
We are the waters of the Great Sea

~ Piero Falci

……..

Let us begin by being aware of this moment, of what is going on right here, right now. Let us pause and listen to the sounds of the ocean and feel the morning breeze caressing our bodies. Let us, now, as we welcome the fear of death, bring to mind the fact that nothing lasts forever, that everything is impermanent, that all things, in this physical dimension, are being transformed all the time. Let’s allow this inescapable reality of life –, the cycle of birth, growth, decay, and death — to be understood, felt, and accepted with serenity. But let us also remember that we are, at the same time, mortal and immortal, human and divine, independent and interdependent, separated and connected,  many and one. Let us live without fear, knowing that we are not alone. All of us are molecules of an immensely larger, mysterious, and glorious organism. May we be able to evoke the memory of this breeze and these sounds, and recall that we are eternal spiritual beings having temporary human experiences. This shall help us navigate through fearful times with tranquility.

We are the waters of the Great Sea
Waves brought us here, to these shores
But here we cannot stay, except for a short while
We must return to where we came from
We are the waters of the Great Sea
