or what harm is caused by its water.
The River is the River, and that is all there is to it.

This physical world is to our imagination as ice is to water -
pure water forms pure ice - dirty water forms dirty ice.
Consider how much easier it is to purify water before it freezes
than it is to chip the impurities from the solid ice.
So also, it is much easier to purify your thoughts
before they manifest into physical reality,
than to try to cut the cancerous impurities from solid reality
after you have manifested your thoughts into physical form.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

the beans and squashes, which give us life.

We return thanks to the moon and the stars,
which have given us their light when the sun was gone.

in whom is embodied all goodness,
and who directs all things for the good of his children.
