“We’re all just walking each other home”, Ram Dass
All of us are on a journey through this life. For some the path is smooth and for some it is very rocky and uneven. Often we hit cul-de-sacs and stay there for a while. Sometimes it appears that we have retraced our steps again and again, or are going around in circles.
We are all just walking together, on parallel paths, and those paths can converge and we bump into each other. Sometimes they converge for just a moment, perhaps when we give a brief smile or hello to a stranger. We can have no idea that this might have been such an important event, that they, or we, needed that contact to help each other at just that time.
