Let us imagine that life is a river. Most peoplel are clinging to the bank, afraid to let go, and risk being carried along by the current of the river.
When the pain of hanging on becomes greater than the fear of letting go, we let go and the river begins to carry us along safely. Once we are used to being in the flow of the river, we can begin to look ahead and guide our course. We choose which of the many branches of the river we prefer to follow, all the while still going with the flow. We can ejoy being here now, flowing with what is and at the same time, guide ourselves consciously toward our goals by taking full responsibility for creating our own lives.
"As I relax and let go, I flow toward my greatest good"
