Learn from the river as she flows to the open arms of the sea. Learn from the river as she flows.
See how she meanders, taking the path of least resistance, looping around the rock and seeking the ground that slopes downward. See here how she even flows away from the sea for a time, yet it is all toward the sea, just going with the way the land goes and letting be.
And even when the river rages, even then, it is not a straight line. Nothing in nature is straight. All is curved and forgiving, giving way and asking for way to be given. All is an exchange, a flow, a give and take, a recognition of the way things are.
And yet, the river is relentless, even when she runs underground, even when she dries up in the summer. Still, she will return and the grooves formed in the soil in the previous winter will make the spring surge all the easier this season.
For year after year, season after season, relentless and flowing, the river goes to the sea. Learn from the river as she flows.
Here is a little prayer for today
I am fluid and moving, yet relentless in my focus and attention.
I am fluid and curving, forming myself to the landscape, yet always continuing in my flow.
My belief is total. My commitment is complete.
I am power, the power of the river. I am.
