Water seeks its own level, as does every other thing. The Cosmos and all there is therein are all looking for balance, harmony, equilibrium, stability, homeostasis, oneness within and without, peace, tranquility, serenity, the Elysian Fields, the Farther Shore, the Pure Land, Nirvana, Heaven... The stable state of a gyroscope, not static, but fluid in a controlled, well-managed sense, always within the normal range of operationally necessary wobbles and rolls, steadily on the beam, in accord with Yin and Yang, aligned with the Tao, doing our thing in ways necessary to the good of the whole, of the entirety of which we are a part, true to ourselves and to the collective-- at one with ourselves and all else-- in each situation as it arises forever, is the ideal for which everything strives without end. We do not know why. It is who we are. "Our hearts are restless until they rest in Thee, and Thee, and Thee..." World truly without end, Amen.
