How will our troubled humankind find the wherewithal to get back upriver? Only, I believe, when we take the counter-intuitive route, or conduit, of deeply contemplative and compassionate listening. Less condemnation and brutish retaliation. Deeper receiving and understanding.  More delicate shiftings … all the way home.
