When you hold a drop…it is a drop but when it merges the cannot differentiate …it becomes the ocean………
How do i make a drop understand that it is the ocean?..

I think that the reason the drop cannot accept that it is the ocean is because of its pride. The drop wants to be an individual, but when it becomes the ocean, it loses that individualism. What the proud drop fails to see is that even though it loses its individualism, it gains something infinitely more valuable: it becomes part of the entire community that is the ocean. When the drop realizes that it can be part of something so valuable, it will lose its pride and fall willingly into the rest of the ocean.

@jinay-shah, You drop it into the ocean.

But what are you doing trying to make something/someone understand something? To understand something is a process that takes patience and contemplation. It’s not something that can/ought to be forced.

Søren Kierkegaard said that you need to “meet the person where he is” And I think that really applies to this. And I think agoldman97 is really on to something. ;)
