A Drip in Ocean

Yutang Lin

What could a drip in ocean do?
Tossing with waves willy-nilly.
Grasp not artificial boundary,
Moving as a whole naturally.


Each individual is tiny in the world, and yet personal views and desires are abundant. Situations in the world evolve without a set routine, and preconceived plans, like mirages, could vanish at any instant. Let go of artificial discriminations; originally all are in oneness, so why need to compete or fight? Merge into oneness and go along with conditions; ascending or descending, opening up or closing in, will follow the law of causes and consequences.
