"You are not a drop in the ocean, you are the ocean in a drop."

Listen Now:

This quote by the 13th century Persian Poet Rumi. “You are not a drop in the ocean, you are the ocean in a drop”.

That’s deep. Not just deep in the ocean, but deep in thought.

Often, when I think about the world and the infinity of the sky, the unknown of the ocean, and the abyss of space, I question existentially what my purpose is and what meaning my life serves. My default reaction is to see myself as just one speck in the big picture, but this quote totally flips that thought on its head. We’re not one speck that makes up the larger picture, we are the entire picture in one speck.

“You are not a drop in the ocean, you are the ocean in a drop”.

This means that the entire possibility of the world resides inside of you, and you are capable of creating from that space. Not only is the world abundant, but each one of us individually is abundant. It’s a powerful realization because in it we know that we are capable of what we desire and destined for self-actualization.

Now when it comes to this infinite potential, we need to be focused and recognize what is authentically us. What is our truth, what are our natural strengths, and how can we go about expressing those in a meaningful way. This is actually the first step in the Greatness Accelerator Program. Gaining clarity on our values and vision so that we have a solid framework to create from!
