Teaching Each Other: Public People

Mary's Way

“Once I was on a train on a rainy day. The train was slowing down to pull into a station. For some reason I became intent on watching the raindrops on the window. Two separate drops, pushed by the wind, merged into one for a moment and then divided again--each carrying with it a part of the other.  Simply by that momentary touching, neither was what it had been before. And as each one went on to touch other raindrops; it shared not only itself but what it had gleaned from the other. (…) I realized then that we never touch people so lightly that we do not leave a trace. Our state of being matters to those around us, so we need to become conscious of what we unintentionally share so we can learn to share with intention.”
