“It is said by the Eldar that in water there lives yet
the echo of the Music of the Ainur
more than in any substance that is in this Earth;
and many of the Children of Ilúvatar hearken
still unsated to the voices of the Sea,
and yet know not for what they listen.”
“In one drop of water
are found all the secrets of all the oceans;
in one aspect of You
are found all the aspects of existence.”
“When you sit in silence long enough,
you learn that silence has a motion.
It glides over you without shape or form, exactly like water.
Its color is silver.
And silence has a sound you hear
only after hours of wading inside it.
The sound is soft, like flute notes rising up,
like the words of glass speaking.
Then there comes a point when you must shatter
the blindness of its words, the blindness of its light.”
