The Hidden Harmony

Into the same river we step and do not step.

You cannot step twice in the same river.

Everything flows and nothing abides.

Everything gives way and nothing stays fixed.

Cool things become warm, the warm grows cool.

The moist dries, the parched becomes moist.

It is by disease that health is pleasant;

by evil that good is pleasant;

by hunger, satiety, by weariness, rest.

It is one and the same thing to be living or dead,

awake or asleep, young or old.

The former aspect in each case becomes the latter,

and the latter again the former,

by sudden unexpected reversal.

It throws apart

and then brings together again.

All things come in their due seasons.

Into the same rivers we step and do not step…

– Heraclitus 



Just flow. Nothing is permanent. You change every moment. Just flow.
