This is the story of the river of your soul

(and her journey home to the sea)

This is the story of the river of your soul

This is the story

Of the river of your soul

And her journey home to the sea.

There’s absolutely no resisting this inevitable motion

We just allow the waterfall to move through

Filling us with the light of rainbows

Until we become the flow.

Listen to the liquid song

Laughing across the stones

Wearing away the rough edges

With the patient persistence of eternity

Making all the surfaces smooth and beautiful.

We come down the mountain through the valley of existence

Following the curves and eddies of least resistance

Each of us a drop or a ripple in the stream

Till the current takes us completely

To where everything opens

Merging with the ocean.
