The Currents of Life

Life moves, changes, flows–that is its natural current.  We may want to dig our heels in the earth to stop the progression and keep what is comfortable to us, but it will do us no good to struggle.  It has been said before that Life is like a river, and to block the flow of the river is to become stagnant.  So, as much as we may hold on or try to cling to the rocks, as much as we may resist, complain and attempt to avoid what is….well, it is just wasted energy.  The year I graduated High School, Illusions by Richard Bach was published.  This was the first book that made a deep impact on my life.  To me, Fall always feels like a letting go, a learning to flow with the rhythms of life, a surrender to a higher source and I am always reminded of Illusions.  May you enjoy these freeing passages:
“Though I cannot see it with my eyes, I trust that the current knows where it is going.  I shall let go, and let it take me where it will.  Clinging, I shall die of boredom.  The river delights to lift us free, if only we dare to let go. Our true work is this voyage, this adventure”

“You are led through your lifetime by the inner learning creature, the playful spiritual being that is your real self.  Don’t turn away from possible futures before you’re certain you don’t have anything to learn from them”

“A cloud does not know why it moves in just such a direction and at such a speed, it feels an impulsion…this is the place to go now.  But the sky knows the reason and the patterns behind all clouds, and you will know, too, when you lift yourself high enough to see beyond horizons”

“Every person, all the events in your life are there because you have drawn them there.  What you choose to do with them is up to you.”

“Learning is finding out what you already know.  Doing is demonstrating that you know it.  Teaching is reminding others that they know just as well as you.  You are all learners, doers, and teachers.”
