Rising Water Raises All Boats
It often becomes our central focus. And at times, it can seem like we barely keep our heads above water. Sink or swim - we just keep on paddling.
This week in an instant of profound introspection, I noticed myself doing just that. As I was tempted by a situation that could have irritated me; seemingly pulling me off my course.
-While our program frequently aims to cast a wider net, this week I am inspired to keep it short and sweet.
James Brown tells us - “Like a dull knife just ain't cuttin’; talkin' loud ain’t saying nothin.”
Swimming in that day-to-day stream of activity; sometimes we realize for ourselves when we are talking a lot and saying nothing. As wisdom arises and hopefully we learn to see both the humor and absurdity in anything which comes our way. May there be growth in how we see these moments of triggered contemplation; allowing clarity and awareness to wash over us.
-Rising water raises all boats.
Such an empowering thought.
Rising water raises all of the boats. Not just one. And certainly not just fighting to keep itself afloat. Being the water brings exponential growth. Focusing on the boat creates an energetic resistance that waters down your efficiency and effectiveness.
Take a moment on your own- to reflect and wonder:
- How deeply will you allow the waters to flow?
- Are you the dam or the faucet?
- Are you a well-spring or an arid desert wasteland?
- Are you running anxiously for higher ground or diving in to courageously pull another into the rafts of life?
Sometimes one becomes a sponge, sucking everything dry without truly giving back. The state of your energetic nature and signature matters; for it allows your waters to truly flow.
