Taya River 107

Waterfall

Waterfall-

You are a drop of water.
One drop.
One drop in a vast infinite flow.
Can you be both at once?
The drop and the flow-
The particle and the wave?
Yes,
you can,
but you must unlearn
that the drop is insignificant
and you must unlearn that the flow
is unloving and relentless.
When you can become both at once
you can master any terrain in which you are flowing
with the gentleness, grace, and power of a river.
Even when that river plummets into the depth
it creates the beauty of a waterfall.
And as you become the river you feel the pull
of your true calling,
And when you follow your calling…
The Universe follows along.
