The River flows with no concept of good and bad - right and wrong.

or they may founder in a storm and drown, and the River just flows.

It is not unchanging, but it is timeless,
and it changes in its own time.
The River of Life knows no obstacles.
The River can cut through solid rock - in its own time.

or what harm is caused by its water.
The River is the River, and that is all there is to it.
