Have you ever seen a waterfall? I ask this question because if you have indeed seen one, then you would be well aware of the nature of the “falls”, the diligence with which they obey gravity.
The sounds of water crashing against rocks have a melody which is unmatched. The picture which layer after layer of gushing water creates is serene, with a cold blooded violence about it. The purposeful nature with which the falls kiss the rocks every passing moment almost succeeds in veiling the laidback and carefree nature with it does absolutely nothing else.
Going back to the question posed, ever thought what lies behind the sheet of water that appears so distinctly when one first looks at the falls? I have never seen for myself but I cannot help but imagine that beyond the curtain of water would be a dry and steady cove, in stark contrast to the wet instability which is witnessed on the outside. But the question to be answered remains dwells on the path across the curtain.
One cannot help but notice the almost uncanny similarity which a waterfall has to the human mind. As expressed earlier, our mind, very much like a waterfall can be tranquil but still be morbidly cold with its indifference. The experiences which we come across in our mundane existence are more than enough to create giant ripples on the seemingly calm surface of the human mind, picture it vertically and you might just find yourself gazing at an unruly waterfall.
The quest for crossing the curtain remains unfinished, well for most of us it does. One can only hope to find a passage across the seemingly mighty curtain of water, waiting to unearth the mysteries behind  that curtain of water.
