Like waves on the ocean, life is full of ups and downs. To be in the Tao is to easily adjust, to flow with the rhythms of life so that neither ups nor downs throw one off course. Mindful awareness offers the steadiness and balance that naturally seeks stability so that one is always in the Tao, flowing naturally with life’s rhythms no matter what comes along to tip one into the churning waters.
Steady your boat. Easy as she goes. The waves will come and come again, but then they will ease. Keep steady and straight. When mindfully in the Tao, working the rhythms, you will soon get where you need to go no matter the weather, no matter the waves of life. Set your course and sail!
