There’s a stream that I cross every day when I’m walking my dog. He loves to go down into the stream to get cool and take a drink. When I stand on the bridge, I study the contents of the stream below. I usually see some raccoon tracks, maybe a snake, but always a school of fish. This school of fish is there in the same place every day.
What I find interesting is that each fish is using quite a bit of energy to just stay in place. The stream is flowing and they are not so that requires some energy. If they went upstream, as salmon do, that would require more energy. If they flowed with the stream, that would require almost no energy at all. It would seem effortless to go with the flow.
Consider that you are one of these fish and the stream is your life. In what area of your life are you staying in place when the current of your life is trying to take you in another direction? This can be anything from your job to a relationship. Maybe there’s something you’ve always wanted to do and are waiting for the perfect time. The perfect time is always the present. We are not guaranteed more time.
Lean into the energetic flow of your life and you will find that amazing things will open up for you. The perfect house may become available or a new job opportunity may suddenly be available. Staying in place, whether it be physically, emotionally or spiritually, is not what’s meant for us. We are here to learn. Once you’re learned and feel the itch to move, let go and let life take you where you’re supposed to be.
Peace to you today and always.
