The great spiritual tension between the contemplative life of the monk and spiritual activism in the world dissolves entirely with one word—namaste: the light in me bows to the light in you.
When meditation reveals the light in ourselves, we naturally want to bow to the light in all beings—to act on their behalf in reverence and devotion.
When we truly see the light in another being, our own light shines forth, dissolving the seemingly eternal ache in our hearts and the near constant struggle of the ego mind. To see the light in one being—your own light or that of another—is to win the cosmic game of hide and seek and ease the suffering of the world.
—Darren Main, River of Wisdom: 108 Life-Changing Reflections

In River of Wisdom, Darren offers precious insights and inspirations, beautiful stepping stones into the eternal, divine, ceaseless and boundless River of Life. Each passage is, itself, both a reflection of the river which flows through us all and also a pathway into the river, pulling us into the sacred waters, out of the dry maya in which we live on the shore.
