“I can hear the breaking of the raindrops as they kiss the earth; it’s beautiful. The continuous, reverberating sound of their splattering makes my heart light. They make collision and catastrophe lovely. Look at them, just falling. They fall and break and they don’t mind at all. Nature has a really brave heart. Maybe because it knows that nothing is wasted.”
Why is it so hard for us, people, to understand that nothing is wasted? Our inability to understand the principle of conservation of everything – everything is neither created nor destroyed, everything is just transformed from one form to another – is what breaks us.
We are so absorbed by the idea that there’s something better than something. We think that happiness is better than pain. We think that “the more, the merrier.” We think that the present is better than the future. We think that the person in front of us is just someone that God has put in our lives for the sake of nothing.
As a result, we are so afraid to love. We become apprehensive when we find ourselves caring too much, loving too much, asking too much, thinking too much, understanding too much; we fail to realize that through these things, we’re living too much. And isn’t that what we want, to maximize our lives?
To live without love isn’t living at all.
