Flow Like Water…

“Be like water”, Bruce Lee said.

My husband Anthony has adopted this saying lately and we have taken to say “flow like water” whenever a situation pushes back at us– or there seems to be something in the way. When I hear these words, I am instantly reminded to accept the flow in the direction it is going, not the direction I had expected it to go or wanted it to go.flowlikewater

So much of our suffering comes from wishing that things are not as they are. I am a firm believer that things unfold the way that they are meant to, no matter how uncomfortable it seems. The more fluid we are in acceptance of what is, the less we suffer and the more open our lives to opportunities we may never have dreamed of. There is always a lesson in everything, no matter how seemingly small or insignificant– and we never know from what we maybe protected– or why our river must flow in a different direction, but we must trust and keep flowing. Often, the hardest lessons are the most profound and transformative.

Trust in the flow of life and you will see…
