Life is like being on a sailboat, moved by winds, guided by your heart and mind. The winds can blow one direction and we learn to ride those waves; patiently maneuvering our way in the direction we are heading, or the wind is guiding us. Sometimes the winds seem to not be blowing in the direction we want; we try to force our way anyway, we have places to be, things to do, goals and ideals to reach. Yet as we struggle to make headway in the winds, our forcing ends up putting us in the storms path. Shaking us, scaring us, completely changing the course of our trip as it has spit us out somewhere very different than where we thought we wanted to be.
In a society that has become normalized by the forcing, forcing of ones will on others, beliefs, and actions… Finding patience is like finding that perfect wind that sails you to the next destination with ease and alignment.
As we all struggle through this current storm, with shifting winds, pelting rain, have you noticed where you are forcing and were you are patient? @krystamaravilla
