behind the form, the formless

behind the form, the formless
behind the named, the nameless
behind the multiplicity, the One
gives birth to all and none.

Lucky the person whose vision is so clear, that he sees the same essence under all manifestations. Just like waves forming on top of the ocean, so consciousness gives rise to all the different forms and experiences we have, to all life and death. But consciousness itself remains unchanged, untouched, undying. The change occurs only on the surface, as the bottom of the ocean is forever unaffected by the waves on top.
Are waves not also the ocean?
