The Raindrop

Does the raindrop hold in its fullness
The raging stream?
Does the raindrop in its loneliness
Feed the solitary tree on the hill?
Does the raindrop in its great descent
Create the sweet sound of the many waters?
Does the raindrop in its pureness
Quench the aching thrist?

It is the unwise who chase
The shadow of self in Life.
And Life Eludes them,
For they wander in the ways of bondage.

Wherefore the struggle in loneliness of division?
In Life there is neither you nor I.

J. Krishnamurti, The Song of Life, XIV, p 29
The Star Publishing Trust, Ommen Holland, March 1931
