Our hearts infinite oceans of rememberings and feelings of LOVE are all that rescue and save us from our brain’s washings of fearful, stormy manifestations that sweep like waves over us and would otherwise have drowned us more completely in madness than we already are, its tide sweeping us entirely from the sea of this existence in the process.
“Our behavior is different. How often have you seen a headline like this?–TWO DIE ATTEMPTING RESCUE OF DROWNING CHILD. If a man gets lost in the mountains, hundreds will search and often two or three searchers are killed. But the next time somebody gets lost just as many volunteers turn out.
Poor arithmetic, but very human. It runs through all our folklore, all human religions, all our literature–a racial conviction that when one human needs rescue, others should not count the price.” ~ Robert A. Heinlein
