During a particularly “changed-filled” time, a mentor explained that I was about to experience life as if shooting the rapids. “Don’t grab on,” he warned, “just go with the flow….you’ll land in a calm pool when it’s over.” We have lots of ways of experiencing the flow. Sometimes it’s ‘getting lost’ in a project/experience and feeling like everything is in sync. Other times, going with the flow may require relinquishing plans, goals, hopes…in exchange for grace and surrender to whatever the Universe has in store for us today.
The ‘flow’ may take the form of waterfalls (cleansing, release – sometimes overwhelming, sometimes frefreshing — always healing), running rivers (everything from ambling to shooting the rapids), gentle creeks. Tapping into your own flow…and allowing the current of life to buoy and bathe you is part of nature’s gift.
In rivers, the water that you touch is the last of what has passed and the first of that which comes; so with present time.
(Leonardo Da Vinci)
