Like a raft floating down river, allowing the current to take it along nature’s path, life has a natural flow for us. To fight it is like trying to paddle the raft up-stream. It will be difficult, tiring, and non-productive.
If we let life lead us along the natural flow of events as they happen, we will have more energy and peace. We will experience a new freedom in not having to fight against the will of others and the situations of things we can’t control.
We will know the true meaning of serenity in loving others right where they are and just as they are whether we agree with what they are doing or what they are like or not.
We will clearly see the ways in which we can change things about ourselves and the situations we are in, for these are the only things over which we have any power.
Today, I will go with the flow of life and let people and things be as they will. I will accept that the only thing I can change is me and I will know peace.
