I think we are a lot like rivers, trying to find our way home, flowing and joining a much greater flow to blend and become one. Our lives are much like the river when it reaches and joins the ocean, whether we recognise it or not, we are heading towards oneness.
Most rivers run to the sea or join another river or body of water, some don’t though, some rivers just dry up, evaporate or disappear into the ground. Like us in a way, when we loose our way or live without purpose.
I love to stand on the shore, water lapping at my feet and know that in some way I have joined something greater, to know that I am part of that flow and will eventually join something much greater than me.
