You know what I came away with? A one-liner from the blue girl -
She was asked why she hadn't taught previous earthlings the blue-people's ways before.
She said something like this:
"You cannot teach someone whose cup is full"
That rich statement keeps coming back to me.
Jesus said something that resonates with that: "Blessed are the poor in spirit."
Maybe to recognize ourselves as needy is a great first step to wisdom
