But when at last they came to, the place where two seas meet, they forgot their fish, which made its way into the water, swimming away at will… Moses said: “This is what we have been seeking.” And they went back the way they came…
Going on a journey is a sign of a new attitude, an attitude of humility and poverty, which conveys a desire to seek a new destinations. The place where two seas meet, where the dead fish comes back to life, that is the place where the soul dies, but also the place where it is reborn.
Tradition are rivers. A river has different sources on different mountains, but the waters come together in a main stream, which goes into side stream, and so on… The river itself with all the side-rivers is the source. And the real value of a tradition is its diversity.
The different rivers of the East come also into Europe today, something new is coming to our lives and gives meaning, as a Dutch poem indicates:
Kuan Yin, who seriously, an lovely, just continues to empty the seas with a thimble, without bitterness or irony… is this maybe the only possible sweet answer…?
A new and simple answer of a newborn child? The art of emptying the sea… like the art of dancing?
