Think of a gentle flowing stream which had its course well charted. Then comes a heavy rain that fells a big tree along the path of the stream. For a while, the stream struggles with the impediment and flows over and under the tree. After a while, it is possible to see another arm of the stream following the path of the felled tree. While the initial path is retained, a new path is created and the stream flows in two ways. Water always finds a way to flow. If you block its path, it finds another. Our lives are sometimes like that.
