There comes a time when you just have to let loose and be yourself. Throw away all the fears, and open to what is there. No matter what. Open to it…
“…confidence, certainty, commitment, perseverance, focus, courage, decisiveness and a willingness to take a risk.”
“The risk is about truth, faith and going after what you know in your heart to be right from a place of integrity and spirit.”
“This will affect all areas of your life including business, relationships, how you show up in the world, your health and well-being, and whom you choose to be around and what you choose to complete or eliminate from your life.”
Classic wisdom says there is nothing weaker than water, yet when united, it can become a titanic force. Like a tidal wave. Or a river that cuts through gorges. This is called yielding overcoming the hard.
Let’s look at it another way. Water does not overcome because it yields. It overcomes because it is relentless. It perseveres and does not give up. It is constant. Rock can block water. Rock can even hold water in a lake for thousands of years. Why can’t the yielding overcome the hard then? Because it cannot move. It cannot work its magic of being relentless.
Just as water must be able to express its true nature in a relentless way, so too must we simultaneously and relentlessly express our true natures if we are to be successful in life. Otherwise, we will find ourselves hemmed in by the hard walls of reality, and we will never be able to break through.
But how we we acquire such perseverance? We start small. As drops.
