We Are Only A Moment Here

The word redundant's Latin meaning is wave, or wave sound. At one time the word captured the great beauty of the ocean's repeating itself.  The sound of the waves breaking on the shore is steady and calm.  I watch it and think, this is what the universe is.  While we turn ourselves inside out with worry, the universe is calm.  We are not even the pause between the coming and the going of tides.  All we dreamed of and all that we feared will recede into nothingness, and be born again only to dissolve.  The ocean's lesson to me is the nature of things. Peace is what we are.  Everything else is in the mind.
