From today’s typing:
He led Hawk Descending around the cottage, back to the sitting stones by the side of the stream. This sot had become their classroom. After they were both seated, Celestia looked over the brook, inviting Hawk to watch the waters flow.
In time, the elder said, “The stream is ever in motion, yet it is ever the stream. What is the essential nature of the brook?”
Hawk thought a moment. “The waters seeking their way back to the ocean?”
Hawk pondered. “It is the flow of essence through this valley?”
“Not through the valley.”
“Through this moment of existence,” Hawk corrected himself. “The stream is the flow of essence through this moment of existence.”
The Master Harper studied his pupil a moment and then nodded his head. “You have many thoughts yet — many beliefs — which rob you of the true power of this moment. The truth of this moment is that you are the flow of essence through this moment of existence. That is the only truth. Everything else is beliefs, accepted by convention.”
