we are just dewdrops on lotus leaves

The individual is a fiction - the whole cosmos is a reality.

We are just dewdrops on lotus leaves, very beautiful in the early morning sun. But a small breeze comes and the dewdrop slips into the ocean...

It does not die, it simply becomes infinite, eternal.

As a dewdrop it was going to die sooner or later. As an individual we are all going to disappear into the universe. Before we disappear, the only way to live a life of joy and blissfulness, a life of gratitude and prayer, is to find your eternal roots. And they are so close within your grasp, you don't have to go anywhere, neither in time nor in space.

This very moment you are breathing the universe, your heartbeat is in tune with the universe;

This very moment your roots are being nourished by the universe, just you have never looked within.

And you have been unnecessarily begging for small things, while inside you are an emperor. The splendor that you have inside you is unimaginable, the treasure is incalculable.

Just a single look inside and a new dimension of existence opens up. And this is your reality, authentic reality.

It is so blissful and ecstatic that once you have tasted it you will carry this taste forever...

One of the Indian mystics, Kabir, in his youth wrote a small poem, the beginning of which means, "I have been searching my self, my friend. But on the contrary, finding myself, I found no 'myself.' The dewdrop disappeared in the ocean, now where to find it? I am no more."

Osho inspiration for your Heart...
