Thought for the day, Friday 18th March

“It is said that before
entering the sea
a river trembles with fear.
She looks back at the path
she has travelled,
from the peaks of the mountains,
the long winding road crossing
forests and villages.
And in front of her,
she sees an ocean so vast,
that to enter
there seems nothing more
than to disappear forever.
But there is no other way.
The river cannot go back.
Nobody can go back.
To go back is impossible
in existence.
The river needs to take the risk
of entering the ocean
because only then will
fear disappear,
because that’s where
the river will know
it’s not about disappearing
into the ocean,
but of becoming the ocean.”

Khalil Gibran
