I subscribe to a “Quote of the Week” email. I find most of them either enlightening or entertaining. This week’s is a real gem:
Life is our teacher. Life communicates with us all the time and it is a lesson to see how life continuously have led me to the people I need to met, to the situations I need to experience, and to the places I need to be. There has never been any real reason to worry since all small individual rivers are already on their way to the ocean, to the Whole. It is not about swimming, it is about relaxing and to float with the river in a basic trust that life already leads towards the sea of consciousness, towards the Whole.
– Swami Dhyan Giten
If only my mother had known about the Swami. She could have saved us all the trouble of the Red Cross swimming lessons where they nearly drowned me.
It’s not about the swimming you see. It’s about the relaxing and the floating down the river to the Whole.
