“What makes a river so restful to people is that it doesn’t have any doubt or fear – it is sure to get where it is going, and it doesn’t want to go anywhere else.”
I have watched many a river and just the sounds, beauty of the water moving is enough to stir some natural force within our deeper soul. A river’s strength is enough to create new paths without worry or fear. Through mother nature’s guise, the river is her way to balance out the lands and provide source for people in so many ways, spiritually and physically.
As we move through life and co-create with the universe or source, we have many symbols and references to help guide us to our deeper intuition, which exposes our truth to us. Many of us ignore this internal direction, but over time you can’t help but hear it.
We all ask questions like: What are we here to do? What is our life purpose? We all have one, but unfortunately, in our society, we have charted out which jobs qualify as helping others or are on the top list of attributing to society in a “great” way. You don’t have to be the President to help people or make a difference in life.
Working with moms as a Doula, I have heard, “I am just a mom” when they talk about their “job”. JUST A MOM???? Raising future generations to be kind and full of love is such a difficult job as it is not taught, but observed. Then experienced through the child’s own life. When a child is young they are so connected to their truth and yes we will mess them up a bit. However, if we guide them to stay connected to this truth of who they are, who they want to be, and how to continue to evolve and awaken as they knew when they came here things somehow turn our great. You have a healthy, happy, Adult, that is excited to live life.
I just wanted to post this quote today as I believe it is a fabulous reminder that we have to listen to our inner, intention and intuition, so we can stay on track with the gifts we have to help ourselves and others. We can be the power/source the river needs to flow. If we live in fear and constant doubt, then the river will overflow and offer limited supply. If we listen to our inner tune and trust with intense love (even if we don’t know where we are going or what we want to do…yet) The river will flow at a divine pace, directing us to the opportunities to learn and evolve.
May we ride the river, instead of grasping for the shore.
Much love and light,
