If you think

If you think of each problem in your life as a drop of water falling into you and sending ripples in all directions, you begin to get the idea of how deeply each issue in our lives affects us.  Most of us try and contain the ripples, putting up dams and walls so that we feel safe.  Yet this does not create safety, it creates blockages.  When there are enough of these we are left with an illness that seems to spring from nowhere but really is a result of one too many dams.  Then things just start leaking all over.  Feeling allows us to cross the water while also dissolving the dams.  At first it feels uncomfortable but eventually, like a stream that has been clogged with debris for a long time, your life begins to regain a sense of flow and rightness.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott
