A Drop in the Ocean of Existence

Filed under [ Self ]

Every human comes to this continuously evolving planet at a particular point and time in humanity’s history.   We are here for a brief moment and then we depart.  In the spectrum of the earth’s life, an individual’s life spans no longer than a blink of an eye.  Our tendency, however, is to get caught up in our own drama – our emotions, our minds – forgetting that we are part of a past and a mere drop in the ocean of all of existence.  When we get in touch with the continuum of life we realize that our lives are interconnected with those who lived before us and those who will come after us.  Therefore, our ancestors have influenced every one of us and each one of us will influence future generations.   In this context, suddenly our lives become more than simply going about our personal lives – our lives take on a responsibility to the children of tomorrow.

So next time you sweat the small stuff, or even the big stuff, remind yourself that ultimately nothing is all that significant.  We humans come and go, generation after the generation.  Right now it is your turn to be here, but before you know it – you shall pass as well.

Now, how do you want to experience your life – hurt, anxious, frustrated, angry, contracted and small, or forgiving, open minded and hearted, flowing, creative and expanded.

You can choose to be a drop that creates a great ripple – it will not only enrich your life but will make a difference in the world.
