"You cannot step into the same river twice, for fresh waters are ever flowing in."
- Greek philosopher Heraclitus -

Our personal thoughts make waves in time and space like falling rain upon the ocean. Where everything is connected, opposites cannot exists, cold and warm are just different forms of temperature. Life is a circle and one chooses where one wants to be along its border. And as one breaths and thinks, one shifts. Everything changes, nothing lasts forever; all things have the power to create and destruct. 

The universe is giving and receiving; a motion that is in everything. To create one has to master this art of motion. A Hindu legend tells an interesting story about this motion:

Once upon a time there was a boy who lived high in the mountains. He had overheard stories from villagers about riches of both the mind and physique. And one day he asked his master: "How does one obtain unlimited wealth?" To this the old man replied, "Inside every one of us live two goddesses: one is named Lakshmi and the other Saraswati  Everyone respects and loves these beings, but there is a secret that you must know: in order to obtain unlimited wealth one must pay more attention to Saraswati, the goddess of wisdom and self-knowledge, than to Lakshmi, goddess of wealth, both spiritual and physical. By doing so Lakshmi will become extremely jealous and will start to give you more and more attention. Thus, the more attention you pay to Saraswati the more jealous Lakshmi will get and the more wealth you will receive."
