Kevan is one expression of the universal “I”—that single consciousness that also finds its expression in you, that existed long before you and he were born, and that will continue long after all of this is gone.
If that’s too mystical for you, forget it. Kevan usually does. He is an ordinary man of about fifty with an interesting wife and a job that is nothing to brag about. Really, very ordinary. It makes him laugh to think about it.
Having felt himself buffeted about in various ways since he was born, he’s decided that perhaps it’s time for a change of attitude. We’re all in deep, whether we like it or not. We don’t control the temperature of the water or the currents. But we have it in us to swim, and to set our direction. And the water that can drown us also supports us.
As part of his journey of self-improvement, Kevan has resolved not to write about himself in the third person.
