Being in the movement of water

Where we choose to position ourselves makes a difference.

Are we standing upstream, noticing where water is flowing? Or are we looking upstream, feeling the relentless movement coming towards us?

Being upstream and seeing what happens in the flow beyond us has a sense of calm. What happens from here does not affect us. We are merely observing.

But being on the receiving end of the flow is somewhat different. It invites us to become part of the energy of the flow. Yielding to a momentum that feels bigger than us.

And requires bravery.

So here’s a shout-out to all those who’ve stepped into the flow and let it release something more significant in them. You may feel like the water could sweep you away – but it can’t. It’s there to hold you up.

You are the best. Keep going.

Pause. See differently. Re-story 🌿
