“When we are in the midst of chaos, let go of the need to control it. Be awash in it, experience it in that moment, try not to control the outcome but deal with the flow as it comes.”
I am sorry but I cannot remember where this quote came from, or from whom.
But I feel it very comforting, a positive affirmation, mindfulness.
All we can do is ride the wave of life and go with the flow. It is when we try so hard to resist that we cause ourselves heartache and sadness.
I have a Reiki symbol called a “Shanti” tattooed on my wrist…for two reasons. One is because it represents “going with the flow, and let go of the things we cannot control”.
The second reason is because it also looks like my two youngest babies initials. One piece looks like an “I” which connects with what looks like an “E”. I did change it only it that I put a heart above the I.
I also have a tattoo that in Greek says “chaos”, but I will post about that at another time because it was a very thought out symbolism of me and my children… soon I will post about it.
May we all go with the flow, and not resist. Resisting only hurts…
Have a splendid weekend my friends and take in the beauty of another day given to us.
