I found this great Celtic meditation today:
You cannot grasp water in your hand.
It drops through your fingers.
You cannot grasp truth in your mind.
It drops through your thoughts.
You can only possess water by drinking it,
Taking it it into your body.
You can only possess truth by living it,
Taking it into your heart.
From Robert van de Weyer, Celtic Parables: Stories and Poems, p.28.
