Thought for Sunday: Life is full of balance. The coming in and going out of the tide, the rising and setting of the sun and the moon, the daily routine - they all give us a feeling of constancy and of security. When we allow things to happen, when we don't fight against them, when life moves smoothly - we are in the flow.
When we fight against what we don't want, life becomes a battle. Recognise those things that you have no power over, accept the moment and allow life to flow. It's amazing how things turn out as we would never have expected, and for the better.
Years ago now, i had the most beautiful 17 hh Bay Thoroughbred. He was wired to race and the tighter I held the reins, the faster he went. I learned to let go of the reins and he relaxed. There was nothing to fear, as he thought there was by my holding on tight. I took a leap of faith in letting go, terrifying and so rewarding at the same time.
He taught me one of life's important lessons - to let go of control, relax and trust. Let lifes rhythm wash over your and go with the flow.
