Every drop of water is part of all the water in the world. It seeps into the soil and evaporates again. It is carried on the winds, it freezes and thaws, it flows downstream, and it crashes into the shore. At times we may feel like we're battling the current. We may rise, fall, or we may find ourselves joyfully floating, flowing, or embracing the vastness of the ocean. And some days we may be peering out of a fish bowl. Every drop of water simultaneously takes form and is formless, forever adapting to its container, or lack thereof. It is playful and powerful. It is serene and spiritual, abundant, and resilient. Water excels at change. It does not invest itself so strongly in any truth that it would forever cease to consider other states of being. What admirable qualities.
