The Stream of Life

Next time when in the shower, cup your hands together and let the water run into them while holding them close to one ear.  Listen!  Can you hear the sound of the endless stream of water splashing in your hands?  It is like the stream of life: continuous, ungraspable, dynamic, never stopping, endless.

By capturing the sound of the water in our cupped hands, it is as though we could make the stream of life audible.  Actually, it is audible!  Sit comfortably on a chair, close your eyes, and just listen.  What do you hear?
