"we interrupt this stream for an important rock"
That sums up so well and in a lovely pictorial way how we are a stream of consciousness flowing and getting caught up again and again with how important one little pebble is. Keep flowing and the rock wears away, disappears, keep flowing and see where we are now and not get hung up over a long past obstruction.
I'm reminded how on a rafting trip my Dad suddenly felt the need to stop our raft so he grabbed hold of a tree that was overhanging the river. The raft kept on going full pace and my Dad was left hanging from the tree.
