One Drop

Does a drop stay still in the ocean?
Move with the entirety
and with the tiniest particular.
Be the moisture in an oyster
that helps to form one pearl.
— Rumi

We are all drops in the infinite ocean, part of the whole yet trying to make a splash. Why do we focus so much on the splash and so little on being part of the whole? How do we reconcile our smallness in the vast infinity?

One drop at a time. Life is a series of connections that unite and pull us apart across time. This collection of jumbled words, dropped into infinity, won’t change the ocean. But in an instant of molecular attraction, it drew Rumi, you and me together.

Isn’t that something?
