When I was a boy, my friends and I spent wonderful times by the river, sending flat rocks skipping across the water’s surface, until they slowed enough to sink. Much later, I saw this as a metaphor for life. It seems we cannot “go deep” until we slow down.
Sometimes, a rock would skip all the way across the river to the other side without “going deeper”, and I wonder, “How many people’s lives are like this?” Sinking into the deep and cold can be challenging, and yet too that appears to be a most effective pathway to growth.
Thank you, Pierre!
