In the hands of ocean
It is said that before the river flows into the ocean, it trembles with fear. She looks at the whole journey, the peaks of the mountains, the long winding path in the forests, among people, and she sees such an endless ocean in front of her that to enter it is nothing but to disappear forever. But there is no other way. The river can not go back.
And you can not go back. The way back is impossible for existence; you can only go forward. The river has to risk and flow into the ocean. Only when it flows into the ocean, the fear disappears, because only then does the river know that it does not disappear in the Ocean, but becomes It. On the one hand, this is the disappearance, and on the other, the Resurrection.
