Stuck in a great lake of mud

This morning I saw that we are all, even those who are seeking to make a difference, stuck in a great lake of mud. We are moving, but in slow motion, our feet clung to and weighed down by the mud. We are fighting inertia in others and we see it so much that we are held back. What are we to do? Head for dry ground and throw a rope to those in the quicksand. Float to the top. Look to the sun. Separate the earth and the water. Bring fire. Give courage and aid to those who are helping. Ask for more workers. Woe, woe, woe—but we are who we have, and so we must do the work that falls to our hands. We must attend not to the mud but to the rainbows.
