The phenomenon of moon-in-the-water is likened to human
Experience. Thw water is the subject,
And the moon the object. When there is no water,
There is no moon-in-the-water.
And likewise when there is no moon.
But when the moon rises, the water does not wait to
Receive it's image, and even when the tiniest drop of
Water is poured out, the moon does not wait to cast it's reflection.

Past is already past. The future's not yet here.
Things are constantly changing

For the moon does not intend to cast it's reflection,
And the water does not receive it's image on purpose.
The event is caused as much b the water as by the moon,
And as the water manifests the brightness of the moon,
The moon manisfests the clarity of the water.
