Stream of life

There is no going back. You have reached this point in your life by allowing the flow of existence to carry you to this time and place; this situation; this very moment.

You know you cannot return to the past, to the smaller self you once were. This is like facing upstream and trying to go against the pull of the current on a flooded river.

You have grown, expanded, and become more than you were. You are larger in spirit, more expanded in heart, wiser. The fears, doubts, and worries of the past are washed away and dissolve like fog before the morning sun.

You are here now, in this body in this place and time with the people who surround you. The stream of life has brought you here.

At any point you may halt your progress, pull out of the stream, get lost in a backwater, beached on a sandbar, foundered on rocks. Will you cling to the shore and stay stuck, or will you allow the current once more to carry you downstream? The choice is yours.

You who wish to progress and move forward won’t be stranded long. You will once again steer for the main channel, the faster moving current of life that takes you effortlessly to your highest good.

Easy or lazy?

Think of your life as a river. You float easily on the current, you allow yourself to be carried with the flow. When you try to fight the current and go upstream, you expend your precious energy, you deplete yourself. You wear yourself out by living in the past and fighting what is.

Enjoy the journey, the scenery, the effortless ease as you are carried downstream. You can steer and keep yourself in the main channel, partaking of the present moment, constantly choosing to stay in the current.

I am not advocating the lazy way out. I am advocating the constant observation of where you are in the stream, the calm and easy navigation toward what you want, toward your highest good with the current easing your way.

Lazy is letting yourself get washed into a back water, mired on a sand bar, stuck in the mud, because you refuse to steer and do not choose to place yourself squarely in the main channel. Who will rescue you?

Know the difference between ease and laziness. Allow the current of your life to take you easily and effortlessly where you want to go.
