As his mind begins unravelling he understands the situation more clearly. He is in an position to give guidance and help out his fellow man, yet he should not force himself to help. As a river wishes to split on the desert sands, so shall the river be. When he forcefully changes the current and direction when no help is asked, he is all but meddling with mother nature.
A fellow man shall lead his own life, a fellow lady shall learn her life is at a forked road, heading into the direction of utter dismay if no action is acted upon. Whether she learns today, or whether she learns on her dying bed, she will learn one day.
