      Denial when seen, does not remain so,.........isn't it?:-)
      There is really no "on the wagon" or "off the wagon".
      There is just the speeding wagon,........sometimes bumpily, sometimes smoothly.
      The seeing of the speeding wagon,........is seeing that both the bump and the smoothness, are I.
      The suffering of the "wave" in the Ocean arises from the prevailing sense of being a "wave, an individual independent self.
      Because then it is oscillated between the heights of crest and the depths of troughs.
      The ecstasy and the agony.
      The serenity of the Ocean, is not in the absence of the oscillations, .......but in the seeing that both the crest and the trough,......both is nothing but the movement of itself.
