The River of Life

Life is a river.  It is eternal flow.  It is always in motion.  You can try to control it, but it is uncontrollable.  This is when you get frustrated; lose hope.  Give up control and go with the flow.  View life as a river and you as the occupant of a canoe.  There are times when the river is calm.  These moments allow you to rest, gain strength, appreciate the wellbeing, focus on improving yourself and prepare for the future.  Then come the rapids.  These are the times when you need to hold on and go with the flow.  Let the river take you.  You will learn.  You will grow.  You will expand.  You will desire more.  You will find better use of your thoughts, because you will be forced to be strategic.  Don’t fear the rapids; embrace them.  View them as exciting, rather than frightening.  Nobody knows what their future holds.  Your life is like a ball of clay that you are constantly molding.  Keep your thoughts positive.  Keep your vibration high.  Surround yourself with like-minded people that will spur conversations that help you to grow and evolve.  Always consciously evolve.  Pay attention to your life and the events and circumstances you encounter and always find ways to learn and grow.  This is the river of life.  Grab an oar and get paddling!

Accepting Life’s Uncertainty

Acceptance of circumstances and events in life are necessary for harmony and peace.  Life is cyclical and there will always be times that you find aren’t ideal.  The challenging times are merely opportunities for growth and learning.  Removing resistance and going with the flow during these times is the easiest way to navigate through them.  Tackling them head on with determination rather than avoiding them is ideal.  Avoidance only creates more resistance and prolongs the uncertainty and uncomfortable feelings that accompany it.  Focus on your breathing.  Meditate.  Focus on the challenging situation and look at it from different perspectives.  This is the time that you should pull back and look from a broader perspective rather than a fine tuned perspective.  Accept that the outcome of the situation may not be the one that you want, but look for the lesson within the outcome.  This lesson can be used for self-improvement and to keep from repeating past mistakes.  You can also learn from the outcome so that you can be better prepared to navigate the river of life the next time you come around the river bend uncertain of what you are going to find.   Be hopeful.  Be brave.  Be strong.  Learn.  Grow.  Improve.  Accept.

Resistance

When you offer resistance to a situation or something that you do not like, it blocks the energy flow and everything becomes stagnate – almost frozen.  This keeps it in place and revolving around without moving and without movement it cannot be released, so it stays in place.  It is important to allow for the energy to flow in every situation, most importantly ones that are unpleasant or unpleasing, because it is your innate desire to get through these moments as quickly as possible.  Resistance is like quick sand and keeps you stuck in the situation.  Breathe.  Meditate.  Focus on your breath during moments of fear and anxiety.  Placing your focus on something other than the situation will allow you to calm down and become more rational about the brevity of it.  Life is all about movement.  We are always striving to move forward.  Don’t allow situations to keep you stuck in motion and not moving forward.  Growth and change are inevitable and the Universe will push you forward whether you like it or not.  The question is…Do you want to go willingly or do you want to resist?  Which one is the more pleasant experience?  Look at what holds you back.  Analyze and try to find out why you are resisting and then jump-start the action.  Sometimes it is just as simple as taking the leap.  The net will appear.  I promise.
