No matter what our expectations may be, life is always on track.

This journey is not always a smooth ride. After exhausting efforts to paddle up stream and getting nowhere, we hopefully at some point allow the boat of life to turn around and flow with the current. By doing so, we allow our faith in the process to take over. The current of the water (energies of life) is set in motion to guide and assist us throughout our journey. Our expectations and attitude can make the ride rather rough or these expectations and our attitude can make the journey enjoyable. More often than not, we do not recognize that we have this choice.

We can certainly make adjustments along the way but we will never conquer the current by trying to paddle up stream. Our focus and our attitude towards the journey are what guide our boat.

If we are unhappy with our journey, we have to examine why we feel that way. What expectations have we put in place?

What lesson do we need to learn to continue downstream smoothly?

Nothing within the river is there to hinder our journey. The rocks are not there for our convenience or detriment. They just are. If we run into one, maybe it was time to stop and utilize the rock as an anchor to take time to appreciate the view.

When we come to a “Y” in the river, we can take either route. Both will lead us to the ocean. One route may have more rapids than the other but once we have committed to which direction we are going, there is no turning back or we would be paddling against the current again.

We can’t place the blame for the current in our river of life on anyone or anything. The route with the rapids may be more of a struggle but the lessons learned to navigate safely are invaluable.

Life has many choices and paths to follow. There are many avenues of expression along the river of life. We cannot wish the obstacle to be gone but we can certainly learn to maneuver around them or use them to our advantage.

Remain focused throughout all of life’s experiences. Stay true to yourself and do what must be done. Never take the lessons being taught to be a personal provocation.

It is also important to understand that allowing is not a form of giving in or giving up. Letting go and giving up are two very different choices.

You have what it takes to overcome whatever comes between you and contentment (usually your attitude).

If you get stranded as most of us do from time to time, do not be afraid to reach for the life lines thrown to you. Remember, we are not alone in this journey.
