I suspect you will dry out this water, or otherwise drink it down. But the water will absolutely not perish. The water simply changed form and moved on. The water does not dry up, but relieves thirst. Similarly, I try to chop off a finger, or my hands and feet, but I cannot. Freely changing appearances is not water, is not my (red water, blood). In the water there is something that exists in spite of the form of the water; the spirit of the water dwells there (not to be too quick to jump into the waves expelled from water. The waves spread all over and increase and decrease like music, but the spirit of the water neither fluctuates nor divides). I am in the water, I swim, nap, and awaken.
