The circumstantial events of our individual lives carries the same significance as that of a single raindrop in a monsoon.
The truth of life is found in the lessons these moments reveal about the consciousness of the universe, not just a singular experience, but rather the experience of experience. To become attached to a single raindrop will only cause us to drowned in the weight of life's endless rain storm.
We do cling to our experiences, holding on to the joy and the pain, pouring meaning into them. Turning each raindrop into an endless sea of our suffering. We miss so many moments as we drowned in the “meaning” we give each experience, event and thought.
Each rain drop is just another tear in an ocean of loss.
We must not disappear into this endless storm. We need to look up, widen our vision and see the stormy sky and the sunshine above it all.
