Down the surface of my mind,
thoughts slide past.
Each one individually contained,
I do not notice them piling up
creating a mass with its own
This image reminded me of standing at a window pane and watching rain drops trail down the surface. Here, though, I imagined the little circles as thoughts that I am witnessing.
One or two thoughts seem so innocent and small, but as the image shows, even our smallest thoughts, when repeated, can begin to take on a large form with its own mass and momentum.
One tiny thought can be contained.
One tiny thought, excessively repeated, can take on a life much larger than its individual size.
May we use this understanding to create lives of understanding and compassion.
Our ideas of a better life do not need to be large and grandiose.
They can simply be based on one tiny thought of awareness, endlessly repeated, at at time.
