It is so very often we find ourselves exhausted from trying and working and planning and rushing to get things done. It is so very often we find ourselves frustrated and disconnected, incapable of getting anything done. And the more we try, the less we accomplish. Life has such moments, like the ocean has rip currents, and if we stop and observe nature for a moment, we can always learn a lesson. When caught on a rip current, the only way to survive is to let go, to stop swimming and trying to control the outcome, allowing the current to take you to a better place, to calmer waters so you can swim to shore. If we learn to do this with life, if we learn to allow the storm to pass, letting go of the need of control, if we learn to dance with it, we will save our energy for when it’s time to take action.
I found myself at a moment like this a few months ago and I did try to swim through the rip current for a bit with no success, as we know. It was when I relaxed and trusted that the current was taking me to a better place that I understood how important it was to let go and in that letting go I have found purpose, love and a brand new path. Trust me, action is needed but letting go is important too. We learn from nature, we become aware of when to act and when to trust. And so far it has been a nice ride flowing with life.
Much love. Enjoy the flow.
