Picture yourself swimming floating – peacefully down a gentle stream. All
you need to do is breathe, relax, and go with the flow.
Suddenly, you become conscious of your situation. Frightened, overwhelmed
with what ifs? your body tenses. You begin to thrash around, frantically
looking for something to grab on to.
You panic so hard you start to go under. Then you remember – youre working
too hard at this. You dont need to panic. All you need to do is breathe,
relax, and go with the flow. You wont drown.
Panic is our great enemy.
We dont need to become desperate. If overwhelming problems appear in our
life, we need to stop struggling. We can tread water for a bit, until our
equilibrium returns. Then we can go back to floating peacefully down the
gentle stream. It is our stream. It is a safe stream. Our course has been
charted. All is well.
Today, I will relax, breathe, and go with the flow.
