We are this stream

The Occupy Movement topic reminded me of this “Buddhist Thought of the Day”

A myriad of bubble were floating on the surface of a stream. ‘What are you?’ I cried to them as they drifted by. ‘I am a bubble, of course” nearly a myriad of bubble answered, and there was surprise and indignation in their voices as they passed. But, here and there, a lonely bubble answered, ‘We are this stream’, and there was neither surprise or indignation in their voices, but just a quiet certitude. – Ask the Awakened by We Wu Wei
