It moves over and around the rocks. It moves with the river bend.
You may not notice the flow at times because the flow is a constant. But your cascade is continuous.
Your current is constantly changing. The change varies by degrees, some obvious, others not.
Take a moment to feel the flow of your life. It’s easier to notice your current by sensing with feeling. The thinking mind has a way of sometimes making things other than they are.
Notice the movement of life’s stream in your body.
The way your blood flows, and your heart beats, and how nerves send electrical signals through your body.
How thoughts move through your mind. How sensations appear and disappear in your body.
The way your lungs take in air, converting it into oxygen and dispersing it through your body.
See the movement of life through your attention, focusing on one thing and then another and another.
The way you shift your body and move your hands.
You’re where you are now. But earlier you were somewhere else. And soon you’ll be in a different place.
Yesterday you were somewhere else. And somewhere different ten years ago.
And the people that used to be in your life, and aren’t anymore.
And then people who weren’t here a ways back, but are now a part of your life.
Plus how your body has grown or shrunk in different ways.
All these and more are movements in the river of your life.
It can help to be aware of the flow. It can help us let go of resistance to change. And it can help us accept the changes that have come our way.
