Ocean of Consciousness
You are not a drop in the ocean,
You are the entire ocean in a drop.
In my travels, I remember reading Buddhist teachings that spoke
about each of us being a wave in the ocean of consciousness.
In modern society there is so much focus on the self: self-improvement, self-esteem,
self-confidence, self-doubt. The overindulgence of our ego distorts our perception of
independence hence creating a false sense of self. In truth, while we manifest our
independence, we are still part of the ocean of humanity and if we don’t help each
other then we will all sink. Compassion and unity will connect us to build a better world.
