Stages of the river: Destination
The destination is the end of the river. In human life, the destination represents peace, death, and end.
A river is a unique phenomenon of nature. In the river, fresh water is added to the existing water every moment. This everyday phenomenon is responsible for the freshness of the river water. In the absence of this continuous flow of newly added water, the river will lose its freshness; it will not be able to maintain its health-giving, even life-giving, properties. The same method is adopted by nature with regard to human beings. As we know, humans continue to be born, generation after generation. Within a hundred years, the previous generation is replaced by a fresh set of people. If the old water is replaced with fresh water, human beings, this same occurrence takes place in the form of previous generations yielding place to new generations.
