“They both listened silently to the water, which to them was not just water, but the voice of life, the voice of Being, the voice of perpetual Becoming.” – Hermann Hesse, Siddhartha.
How freely would you say does the voice of your Being speak through you? Are your heart and mind attuned to it? Or are you preoccupied with the awful din of a world gone mad?
If you so live that a part of you, even if it is hidden from the world around you, is untroubled and listening, you will begin to hear this voice. The stormy seas around you will become glassy from the inside out, and slowly, but surely, that sea of glass will become mingled with the fire of perpetual Becoming.
