crossing the flood

[theme  |  subdued]
[music  |  Powerman 5000 "Last Night on Earth" ]
"How, dear sir, did you cross the flood?"
"By not halting friend, and by not straining I crossed the flood."
"But how is it, dear sir, that by not halting and by not straining you crossed the flood?"
"When I came to a standstill, friend, then I sank; but when I struggled, then I got swept away. It is in this way, friend, that by not halting and by not straining I crossed the flood."

Buddha, "The Connected Discourses of the Buddha"
