Quotes about waterfalls and life

There’s something about waterfalls that can change your perspective or a problem you may be facing in life.

Life is like a waterfall – in the end, we’re all one.

After we are separated by birth from this oneness, as the water falling from the waterfall is separated by the wind and rocks, then we have feeling. You have difficulty because you have feeling. You attach to the feeling you have without knowing just how this kind of feeling is created. When you do not realize that you are one with the river, or one with the universe, you have fear. Whether it is separated into drops or not, water is water. Our life and death are the same thing. When we realize this fact we have no fear of death anymore, and we have no actual difficulty in our life.”

― Shunryu Suzuki

quotes about waterfall and lfie

Another way to look at meditation is to view the process of thinking itself as a waterfall, a continual cascading of thought. In cultivating mindfulness we are going beyond or behind our thinking, much the way you might find a vantage point in a cave or depression in a rock behind a waterfall. We still see and hear the water, but we are out of the torrent.”

― Jon Kabat-Zinn

A river cuts through a rock, not because of its power but because of its persistence.

Victoria Falls, on the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe, is considered to be one of the seven natural wonders of the world. I visited Victoria Falls on the Zambia side during dry season, and it was almost completely dried up. On the bright side of that, it meant I could swim on top of it at the Devil’s pool and go river rafting on the Zambezi river underneath it. But if you want to see this waterfall in all it’s glory, then you’ll want to visit just after the rainy season runs from late November through early April.
