In a sense, each one of us is a tiny rivulet given birth by love. Each of us is a rivulet capable of, and with the potential for, becoming the mightiest of rivers. As each rivulet merges into another, and as a stream thus formed of many rivulets merges into a river, and as that river too merges in its turn into a mighty river, which ultimately flows placidly into the ocean, we too in our lives must merge in a total manner into something greater, mightier than ourselves. We are attempting to do this. The love that we receive fortifies and strengthens us.
