The Lesson of the River
I often take my kids to the River. Where I live there are many within walking distance, all exquisitely beautiful all year and fun and cool in the heat of summer.
Also because I go there to do rituals that enhance my life in a myriad of unexpected ways.
Last month I took a very tense 13 year to the river bank and just let her be. At first she was annoyed at being kept there. “Doesn’t the water ever get tired? I mean it NEVER stops!” Talk about projection! Then suddenly she relaxed and said: “The river is such a good lesson. It just keeps going, it never gets stuck, it’s always moving on. We should be more like the river”
My job is done.
Where do YOU go to be reminded of flow that’s always moving on?
