Michael Stone

‘The inhalation waves through you and the exhale washes over the pelvic floor, then leaves the body. You are born, you become a wave, and then you recede. But you are never separate from water. Waves have the quality of water in every movement. Waves and water cannot be separated. You are a wave and life is water. You may have unique characteristics, but you are not an independent entity. Everything that exists is whispered through our breath, courses through our bloodstream, and adheres to our changing cells.
In death there is this same kind of shift. One thing ceases and another thing starts. Of course we are not functioning any more as the wave in the water. We become the water completely. We move back into the elements. In death, we give completely, until we are not functioning relative to the whole; we are the whole.’ (Awake in the World)
