We are as the flute, and the music in us is from thee;
we are as the mountain and the echo in us is from thee.
We are as pieces of chess engaged in victory and defeat:
our victory and defeat is from thee, O thou whose qualities are comely!
Who are we, O Thou soul of our souls,
that we should remain in being beside thee?
We and our existences are really non-existence;
thou art the absolute Being which manifests the perishable.
We all are lions, but lions on a banner:
because of the wind they are rushing onward from moment to moment.
Their onward rush is visible, and the wind is unseen:
may that which is unseen not fail from us!
Our wind whereby we are moved and our being are of thy gift;
our whole existence is from thy bringing into being.
How cool and clever is this? Winner of the prestigious Red Dot Award, the "Rinser" is a toothbrush with a Power Fountain! The original toothbrush features a tunnel in its handle that allows water to flow like a fountain. No more using a cup or bending down to rinse! The "Rinser" is expected to be available in November, but can be pre-ordered now for $22.
