It is said that before entering the sea a river trembles with fear.
It looks back at the path it has traveled,
from the peaks of the mountains, along winding road crossing forests and villages.
And in front of it, now it sees an ocean so vast, that to enter there seems nothing more than to disappear forever.
But there is no other way.
The river cannot go back.
Nobody can go back.
To go back is impossible in existence.
The river needs to take the risk of entering the ocean
because only then fear will disappear,
because that’s where the river will know
it’s not about disappearing into the ocean,
but of becoming the ocean.
