“When you stop chasing the wrong things, you give the right things a chance to catch you.”
When it comes to my goals and dreams, I am a very impatient. So often, I take control and try to speed up the process rather than allowing my life to unfold exactly as it should. This always leads to disappointment and frustration.
Everytime I surrender to what is and accept my current situation completely, I realise I am exactly where I need to be and am exactly in the right place to receive what I need.
Life shouldn’t be about wishing, waiting or resisting. It should be about being present and allowing our life to flow naturally forward in whatever direction that is perfect for us. In doing so, we may just find we have already arrived!
THE OTHER SIDE…….
One day a young Buddhist on his journey home came to the banks of a wide river. Staring hopelessly at the great obstacle in front of him, he pondered for hours on just how to cross such a wide barrier. Just as he was about to give up his pursuit to continue his journey he saw a great teacher on the other side of the river. The young Buddhist yells over to the teacher, “Oh wise one, can you tell me how to get to the other side of this river”?
The teacher ponders for a moment looks up and down the river and yells back, “My son, you are already on the other side”.
