The wave is the ocean

"You are a function of what the whole universe is doing in the same way that a wave is a function of what the whole ocean is doing." - Alan Watts

It is a misunderstanding of reality to see that a wave is born and then it dies. When you realize that the wave is the ocean, the notion of existence and non-existence doesn't make sense.

There is no birth or death. There is only the continuation of water and the forces of the moon and the wind and all the causes and conditions that gives rise to waves.
