This morning in Puerto Rico, i meditated on the beach, listening to the little waves breaking on the sandy shore.
Also hearing some distant traffic noise.
Also hearing the constant ringing in my ears that i live with.
Hearing occasional bird calls. Doves. Mynah birds.
Everything in constant flux. No one thing staying the same for a second. The light moved gradually across the sand into full sun.
Water flowing, back and forth. Not unlike the tides of my own body with every pulse. I can't see the constant change inside the body. I see the outer "earth" element of the body, which like the sand appears stable.
And i am fooled into believing there is permanence.
