A wave is riding along the ocean having a grand time. As it draws near shore
he notices the waves ahead of him crashing against the shore. My G-d, he
breathes, this is terrible. Look what’s going to happen to me. Along comes
another wave and asks, why are you so sad? You don’t understand, says the
first wave, all of us waves are going to be nothing. Isn’t it terrible? No.
You don’t understand, replies the first wave. You are not a wave. You are
part of an ocean.
