Though the bamboo forest is dense, water flows through it freely. (Zen saying)
The past few days, I’ve been ‘revising’ for what must be among the most tricky of all life’s lessons: go with the flow.
Faced with the prospect of major changes in my day-to-day life – changes I thought would require careful management, and a level of assertiveness I didn’t feel myself capable of – I devoted more time than usual to meditation.
Trusting that I would be able to handle whatever happens, I committed to the next step on the path.
At once, I became a recipient of unexpected benevolence and generosity.
