The moon on the water is nothing other than water. Therefore the appearance of the moon is but water.
What you “see” of the world around you is nothing other than mind. Therefore the appearances you see are mind.
We see the world as we are, not as it is. The reflection of the moon is dependent on the waves of the water. The reflection of your world is dependent on the waves of your mind.
Let go of those waves until the water is still like a mirror. See the world as it is, not as you are.
