Rolling with the waves - control or surrender

/
Control and expectations march exhaustedly to the beat of their own drum, while surrender and curiosity skip along in the rhythm of life.

Let the champagne bubbles of spring shake you up

We look outside of ourselves for stability. When life flows calmly by, we may even say to ourselves, ‘I must be doing something right’, appeasing the Gods or the Fates, and when life inevitably hits us smack in the face, we feel cheated. If we have the courage to truly ride the swings of life, we find that they are always in motion. It's nothing we 'do' or don't 'do', it just is. 

Who can I trust?

The more I allow myself to patiently watch this process with curiosity and trust, the more my mind begins to understand that it can calm down and that in the absence of control surrender is actually the most economic use of our energy.
