Initiation - Into Mystery of Motion

The 'uninitiated' - 'unlearned,' believe nothing is 'real,'
except,'what' they can grasp with their hands,
and don't admit actions, or processes, or anything
they can't 'see' with their eyes is real.

But others,  who hold these 'secrets' into which
I'm going to initiate you,  are refined and subtle:

The 'first principle' is, that the entire Universe is:
'Motion,' and 'nothing' else.
All things 'are' motion, and 'in' motion,
Although there is a quickness or slowness in their motion.

All things move like 'flowing streams.'
and all things are in process of 'becoming'
as a result of 'movement,' and change, and
of a blending one with another.

We are wrong to speak of any as 'Being,'
For none, ever 'is' - but are always 'Becoming.'
All things are, so to speak, the 'offspring' of
a flowing 'stream of change.'

The hot 'fire' which generates and controls all things
is, itself .. generated by 'movement.'
Further, all living things are 'born' by the same processes.

And just as a healthy condition of the body,
is undermined by 'non-movement,'
but is greatly preserved by 'motion,'
so is the mind, kept from degeneration by 'motion' of activity.

Thusly, 'motion' - controls the 'flow' of all life,
and is a necessity for all of life.
