With each breath the world is renewed,
And so are we…unaware of this constant renewal.
Life arrives anew, anew like water in a stream,
But appears, in form as a continuous thing.
So swiftly it arrives that it looks continuous
Just as fire does when you move it rapidly.
If you set a branch on fire and move it swiftly with your hand,
It appears as a long line.
Creation occurs at an astounding speed;
Thus time appears continuous, and long.
Through the divine word form is born;
Then once again the wave returns to the ocean.
Forms come out of formlessness, then return to the divine.
So every moment you die, and are reborn;
As the prophet said,
The world is but a moment.
