Heavy rain on parched earth is not absorbed. The much needed nourishment washes away the soil.
The child, having words directed at her all day will not absorb their message. The ability to inquire washes away.
The husband justifying his God given right to control his family and have them submit to his will washes away respectful love.
Corporations that profit from child labor wash away the dignity of self-sufficiency. http://www.unicef.org/protection/57929_58009.html
Allow the strength of gentleness to absorb your heart.
Inquire through your eyes.
Share loving compassion with your hands.
Courageously walk with purpose and passion.
Gently breathe with the utmost respect that this moment is a gift.
