Sometimes I say to myself that I am not making any progress and that nothing has changed in my life . What a silly thought is that of course I have changed each minute , each second of every day and that is how it goes like a river I am flowing in sunshine at times and sometimes stopped abruptly by an avalanche of rocks. I like when the river flows freely exploring new territories on the journey, delighted at the sight of a wild flower or a pretty butterfly sharing the journey along the way. But those rocks can be hard to manoeuvre around at times and sometimes this river just has to stop and rethink the path always keeping the memories of those bright moments within its heart helps to navigate around and over those rocks to explore the path of the river yet unknown .
To get through those rocks is no easy task and yet the river yearns to be free and flow towards the vast ocean where much bigger rocks await in the silence of its beauty.The crashing waves torment the heart of the river , yet calm will come and soothe the scars. This the river knows from all the changes it has encountered even though sometimes when standing still the river lies and whispers that “she has not changed” but she knows change and she knows she has lived and goes on living as long as she keeps moving.Some rivers run smoothly and others run into difficulty along the way those difficulties keep appearing until the lesson is learnt .
Banish those stones , move them quickly the quicker the better and let the river flow to enjoy the beauty of the sea , do not fear those mighty crashing waves they most likely mean the experience of bliss has visited also .
