Water and Rock: Two Stories One Phenomenon
My friend and I recently went to Iceland. We drove around the entire island and witnessed nature at its best. Every corner of this tiny country is spectacular. But, my favorite was Moss Canyon (Fjaðrárgljúfur.) For 2 Million years, the Fjaðrá river carved its way down the rocks to a depth of 100 meters (328 ft.) It was the most impressive and peaceful scene I have ever witnessed.
I knew I was going to write a blog about how the rocks just accepted the relentless push of the river and over time created a serene and beautiful site. My blog was going to be about how acceptance and not resistance leads to peace and beauty.
When I mentioned this to Matt, his take was totally different. He was on water’s side. He thought water’s perseverance was what created that magical scenery.
As I reflect on this conversation, I am reminded once again that we each have our own point of view. What creates peace and serenity is the respect and love we show one another, not a power struggle about who’s right.
May your rivers and rocks live in peace and harmony!
