When we awaken and nurture the strong foundations of truth and authenticity within, we move freely with the winds of change. K Lang

A Taoist story tells of an old man who accidentally fell into the river rapids leading to a high and dangerous waterfall. Onlookers feared for his life. Miraculously, he came out alive and unharmed downstream at the bottom of the falls.
When they asked him how he managed to survive he said, “I accommodated myself to the water, not the water to me. Without thinking, I allowed myself to be shaped by it. Plunging into the swirl, I came out with the swirl. This is how I survived.”
When I try to manipulate or control my outer circumstances, I become resistant to the flow of learning and growth. And so, I learned to awaken a strong foundation of trust, courage, and support within and this allowed me to be shaped and guided by the flow of life without fear.
