Just this week I have become aware of the "rushing river" washing around me. Voices of strife and worry, anger and ego, fear and aggression were pointed out to me yesterday. They are far greater than I had been aware of.
I realize I am in the "boat". I must hold out my hand to all who are in the water. Some choose to stay in the water rather than join me. Some join together and release their ego.
My job is to hold out my hand to everyone regardless of who they are or what they have (or have not) said and done. This is where I must release my own ego. I will try to do my best.
