Be Like the River

Letting go of the Shore (Medium)I am re-reading Pema Chödrön’s – Taking the Leap: Freeing Ourselves from Old Habits and Fears… to quote Pema, “Nothing is static or permanent. And that includes you and me. We have a very solid view of ourselves, and also very fixed views about others. Yet if we look closely, we can see that we are as unfixed and changing as a river… the river isn’t the same even for a fraction of a second… our thoughts, emotions, molecules are continually changing.”

How can you be like the river?

  1. I love this question. How can I be like the river? Well, to be truthful, some days the water is pretty stagnant! 🙂 Thanks for the image and reflection.
