River of Experience


Life is a river of Experience;
A hidden current moving everything.


Life seems a river of Experience;
A hidden current moving everything.
The first cause giving birth to endless further causes,
Each cause an effect of endless previous causes.
And so the River flows.

Some, Struggling for a word,
A name for the formless current,
The unlocatable cause,
Say, “Consciousness”,
And create an objectless object.

There is no success in words.
