If…. An Aboriginal Vision

A Canadian aboriginal author once introduced one of his books with the vision of an elder from his community. The elder saw all the peoples of the earth in a single canoe, and the canoe was about to plunge down a very turbulent and violently churning rapids. It would be a very rough ride. But he also saw that if we didn’t panic, and if we didn’t upset and unbalance the canoe, we would all survive and arrive safely in the placid waters below the falls.

Others call that canoe “spaceship earth,” and we are all its crew members.

If… if… if…. We seem to be cursed with the problem of “If“.
