A water droplet maintains its spherical containment area due to something called “surface tension,” which roughly means that the elastic quality of the outer membrane-like surface of the droplet is dependent on external pressure inward versus internal pressure outward, plus the tendency of water molecules to prefer each other’s company over the company of the air molecules surrounding them—sort of a familiarity bias.
The true physics explanation of why a water droplet forms in the manner that it does is well beyond me, but that’s not why I mentioned it in the first place. I am fascinated with water droplet images because to me they represent a holographic depiction of the macrocosm within the microcosm—the wholeness is represented within the minute component of that wholeness.
All that makes water “WATER” is visible within the individual droplet. But the truth is that without surface tension, there would be NO visible droplet separate from the wholeness of WATER.
As difficult as it might be to grasp, it is a similar concept to how our individual energetic-bodies remain separated from each other and from the world of energy at large. We maintain our own individual energy containers because of some type of outer surface tension that defines us as separate energetic units.
You can say that our physical bodies define our perimeters, and that would be true were it not that upon death our energy bodies rise out of the physical body and continue back to from where they came. We don’t just dissipate into the ethers never to be considered as individual units of consciousness again. Consciousness continues, and we, the units of our recently accumulated consciousness through each life that we live, continue as well.
If we didn’t continue after death, you couldn’t request to explore a previous existence through hypnosis Past-Life Exploration, and get a complete story-line package of time-specific visuals and emotions to accompany them—all while sitting in the safety of a recliner in an office setting.
We ourselves are like that water droplet—a containment of conscious energy—a small part (microcosm) of the whole (macrocosm) of greater Consciousness in general, but yet we are a part that still represents the wholeness (macrocosm) of Consciousness within our own individual container (microcosm).
As a representative water droplet, all that is WATER is within us.
Likewise for us on a human scale, as an individual vessel of conscious awareness, all that is Consciousness is represented within us.
