A river flows
Rivers flow when the streams that feed them are healthy, unrestricted. Rivers dry when the streams that feed them are unhealthy, restricted. Rivers overflow when the streams that feed them are unhealthy, unrestricted. Healthy community & environment coupled with freedom to form and move leads to a powerful force that provides sustenance, energy, throughputs. A healthy watershed BEGINS w generous distribution of resources to nourish its environment first. What is left enters the riverine system to work in COLLABORATION with that which arrives from other watersheds to provide different, but still generous gifts to the larger network of waterways. A river is both the way and the guide. You can surrender and flow to source, or you can travel up and return to source.
