Here is an excerpt from my book, The Silent Master: Awakening the Power Within:
The elders who had been part of the original dispute cautiously entered the hall where the elders of the other neighborhood were gathered. They explained their situation, and then waited anxiously as the council conferred.
To their amazement, the elders were sympathetic and compassionate. They volunteered their help and they offered to share their well.
Together, the neighborhoods came to meet this challenge. They worked together to build canals and irrigation. Each discovered admirable qualities in the other, and grew so close in their endeavors that they became inseparable.
