Post 25 – Enter the Flow

383

Free. Spiralling. Unravelling. A breath. Relief. When hard work finally bears fruit. The joining. Entering the stream. The ocean is close – I can smell the sea air and taste a pinch if salt. Effortless. Flowing. All downstream now. No longer I clutch at the banks and stable rocks. The current draws me on faster and faster. ‘Come with me. That’s right – jump straight in! It’s easy, right?’ ‘I don’t know what they were talking about? Just urban myths’ you say. ‘I concur.’ I always like saying that. ‘The water is warm, just right. How you like it. There is nothing hiding down below. Just keep your eyes on the sunset. That is where we are going, just like every other time.’ ‘Oh yeah’ you say. ‘I forgot.’ ‘That’s alright’ I say. ‘That’s why I’m here to remind you.’ ‘Is it time to let go?’ ‘Yes, we’re about to arrive.’

About annaj

We're all inter-connected and interdependent, so there is not much more for me to say about myself that you don't already know about you. Like all beings, feathered, furred or clothed, I wish to be happy. Around the year 2005, I discovered the Buddhist teachings via a near break-down (when I could no longer live up to my mind-made personal expectations), the kindness of friends, yoga and a book store. For me, from there, there was no looking back. I love the experiential truth that the Buddhist teachings embody. There is nothing there that you cannot experience yourself with a little patience, determination and open-mindedness.
