Little Raindrop Wakes Up From His Dream.
I was a raindrop.
I was falling down through the sky towards the ocean.
It was taking a long time to fall all that way, and as I fell I felt many different emotions,
And thought about many different things.
Looking around, I could see lots of other raindrops falling through the sky also.
A Little Raindrop in the sky.
Suddenly - I stopped!
I just stopped dead in the sky.
And all the other raindrops stopped too.
Suddenly - I realised that my dream-self had been dreaming!
I woke up from this dream-inside-a-dream
And realised that I was not a raindrop at all!
That I was not falling through the sky towards the ocean!
And that there were no other little raindrops falling through the sky either!
'But if I am not a little raindrop - then what am I?
Who has woken up from this dreaming dream?' I wondered.
Then it dawned on me -
I was the ocean!
I had been asleep on the ocean bed, but now I was awake.
Now I could see that there are no little raindrops,
Just one big ocean that stretches unbroken, all the way to the horizon.
