The Power Of Rain Drops

Oct 30, 2007
As I sat on my back porch today and watched it rain, I began to notice the rain as it bounced off of the leaves of the tree in my back yard. I noticed that as the rain fell, it helped the leaves on the tree to fall as it is now late autumn. I began to think about the importance of rain and water and realized that everything in life that we experience has a lesson, a purpose. Something to teach us that we previously didn't know or truly understand.

I began to think about how the rain was actually helping the tree to shed it's leaves and prepare for the winter months. Trees lose their leaves so that they are able to sustain themselves and resources for the winter. The rain was helping that tree to do so. Not only that, but it was also giving the tree much needed water in order to prepare itself for the long months ahead.

Then I began to think about how trees help water. Trees help to warm the planet during the summer months which causes evaporation and rain. It's a never ending cycle of this helping that to help itself. I also began to think of water and how incredibly powerful it is.

It flows in the lowest of places. It naturally, without effort, carves it's path in the lowest of spots. Without effort, water is able to start as a hole in the ground and begin to flow until it finds a larger flowing water system, and eventually ends up in the ocean. At times, it even becomes an extremely powerful force of nature as it causes floods, creates waterfalls, and erodes the ground around it.

But water is also the source of life. Nothing on this planet could sustain itself without water. As humans, we are upwards of 80% water ourselves. So it seems to me that our natural place in the world is to lay in the lowest of places and give those places life.

This is supported by some of the greatest people in history. Take mother Teresa for example. She spent her life in the worst places on the planet. Places that run rampant with disease, hunger, war, and many other horrible examples of existence that most of us don't even have to think about in our entire lives. She did so because she wanted to make a difference in those places.

This is each of our true nature. To give to the world more than we take. To offer a solution and opportunity for our true water nature to aid and help the lowest of places. The greatest minds in history have all created solutions to our daily lives. Something as simple as toilet paper allows us to maintain a cleaner, healthier environment.

Coffee makers allow us the comfort of saving time. Alarm clocks, computers, cars, better shoes and clothing. All of these inventions came into being as solutions to daily problems to allow each and every one of us the chance to live happier, more fulfilling, more enjoyable lives.

So the real question is what you have to contribute to the world that makes your life, and everyone elses life better. How can you help trees help themselves, which helps water to move and travel. What is your gift and solution to our daily lives that allows you to lay in the lowest of places and bring life to this world.
