“Even the dewdrop slipping from a lotus leaf trembles
for a moment, tries to hang on a little more,
because he can see the ocean below…
and once he has fallen from the lotus leaf he is gone.
Yes, in a way when you let go you will not be;
just as a dewdrop dissolves into the ocean, you will be gone.
But it is not a loss. You will be oceanic.
And all other oceans are limited.
The ocean of existence is unlimited.”
