The Great Meeting Place

I am swimming in this river of life. Sometimes smack in the middle of the fast moving current, surrendering to the flow. Not fighting it.

Sometimes the river of life runs low during dry periods and grounds me on a sandbar for a time, until the rains come and the water rises again.

And then, once again, I give myself to the river, trusting its course and flow as the current pulls me downstream.

The water of this river joins all waters of the earth, all creeks, rivers, streams lakes, inland seas, all melted glaciers, ice and snow. The current’s pull grows stronger.

The flow of all water on our planet culminates finally in the one great meeting place.

This is the ocean, where numberless droplets merge and become one universe of surging and living water, the stuff of life.

Life is calling!

Life calls you with a powerful voice! Do you block out the sound of her voice with static in your mind, addictions, petty time wasting amusements?

Life pulls you forward like a magnet toward your highest good if you will allow it! Do you resist the pull and hold on to the past to what is with an iron grip? Do you get stuck in the quagmire of your fears? Do you live life with your nose stuck in a shiny electronic device? Dear ones, that sounds like half a life to me.

Life desires your full participation, your clarity and focus. Do you cloud your clarity with excess busyness, with no time to rest, constant activity, anxiety and churning hamster-wheel thoughts?

You have been given the most amazing gift of life! The life force within you requires that you move forward; that you continue to expand and become like a rosebud opening. If the rosebud failed to open , it would soon wither and die.

Life asks that you grow and change and evolve and allow the effortless unfolding process- the blossoming of the man or woman you were born to be.

You are not alone, dear ones. Many have navigated through the boredom, the fear, the feeling of being stuck, the resistance, the half lived days, the addictions… You can do it too. Ask for help if you need it…Others who’ve traveled the same journey can help guide you.

If you have been holding yourself back, when you are ready, you can gently let go of the bank and allow the river of life to carry you forward into your next big adventure!
