"It's just drop of water in the ocean" is a common phrase. Today's message was inspired by the image of a drop of water in the ocean. The saying means that something is insignificant, and sometimes we may feel very little when we think about ourselves compared to the vast ocean, the 7 billion people on this planet, or the entire universe.
But the message I got today was just the opposite.
We are all drops of water in the ocean, and we are a part of the whole. Far from being insignificant, every single one of us and all living beings are part of the universe.
When we see a drop of water fall in a body of water, we notice that it sends out ripples. And to take the analogy a step further, whatever we do or say sends out ripples to our environment. Every day, we send out energy to our friends, family, colleagues, and the greater world. So, what we do and say has an effect on others, and they, in turn, have an effect on those they come into contact with. © Erika Marie Rose and Good Vibes, 2019
