I love places that make you realize how tiny you and your problems are. Over the course of
Earths history, waterfalls as grand as Niagara have come and gone without any human witnesses. So, in geological terms, our love affair with Niagara has been as fleeting as it has been intense. And today, the future of this relationship rests firmly in our own hands. Another way to look at meditation is to view thinking as a waterfall, a cascading of thought. In cultivating mindfulness, we go beyond or behind our thinking, much the way you might find a vantage point in a cave or depression in the rock behind a waterfall. We still see and hear the water, but we are out of the torrent. Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the worlds great flood and ran over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs. Waters haunt me. For most of us, there is only the unattended moment, the moment in and out of time, the distraction fit lost in a shaft of sunlight, the wild thyme unseen, or the winter lightning Or the waterfall, or music heard so deeply that it is not heard at all. Still, you are the music while the music lasts. Here are 149 Best Waterfall Quotes to read, share and love nature
Have you also learned that secret from the river, that there is no such thing as time? That the river is everywhere at the same time, at the source and the mouth, at the waterfall, at the ferry, at the current, in the ocean and the mountains, and that the present only exists for it, not the shadow of the past nor the shadow of the future. God is discovered entirely through creation – the brilliance of a sunset, the powerful roar of a waterfall, the symphony of sounds you hear in the heart of the forest, or the vastness of space and its countless stars. God is the mastermind behind all matter – every earth-shattering scientific discovery and mystery that is yet to be unravelled was dreamed and enacted by God. Be soft in your practice. Think of the method as a fine silvery stream, not a raging waterfall. Follow the stream, have faith in its course. It will go on its own way, meandering here, trickling there. It will find the grooves, the cracks, the crevices. Just follow it. Never let it out of your sight. It will take you. We shall not cease from exploration, And the end of all our exploring Will be to arrive where we started And know the place for the first time. Through the unknown, remembered gate When the last of earth left to discover Is that which was the beginning; At the source of the longest river, The voice of the hidden waterfall And the children in the apple-tree Not known, because not looked for But heard, half-heard, in the stillness Between two waves of the sea.
