When you see water in a stream
you say: oh, this is stream
When you see water in the river
you say: oh, this is water
of the river;
When you see ocean
you say: This is the ocean’s
But actually water is always
only itself
and does not belong
to any of these containers
though it creates them.
And so it is with you.

That's great. Water" creates" all those things around including us. Very god analogy.
