A river that flows downhill needs to hold itself together to reach the sea. In its flowing to the sea are important lessons in oneness and togetherness. Water needs to combine with water to build the momentum it needs for its journey. But how does a river flow upwards, to refresh the source from which it began?
The water needs to dissipate. It needs to discover a higher oneness, beyond itself; needs the sun, the wind, and the air; needs warmth, cold, lightness, and heaviness so that it can be
transformed into clouds, be carried across countries and continents, over deserts and valleys, fall as rain on a mountain top, perpetuate its journey to the sea.
