How to Use the Ebb and Flow of Life to Your Advantage
Are you overwhelmed with so many activities
you don't know where to start?
Are you always in a hurry but seem to get
Do you find yourself in a state of perpetual over-drive?
Do you constantly feel tired?
Perhaps it's time to take inventory of your life.
Here is an excerpt written in the early 1900's by
an author who has very wise words about this
modern day problem. Apparently this problem is not
exclusive to our times.
This author makes reference to life being like the ocean's
waves: incoming waves and outflowing waves.
"Through all creation runs the same ebb and flow,
ebb and flow, which you can see in the ocean. It
is the life-pulse of creation. And there is in it pulse -
the long ebb and flow of spring and fall, the short
ebb and flow at your own wrist. Just so there are
long spiritual spring-flows and fall-ebbs, and there
are the short daily ones you can easily feel. And
there are infinitely smaller ones of which you are
not yet conscious, but to which you subconsciously
respond. The spiritual tides of the One-Power flow
in all veins. We feel them, and respond, but we as
yet only dimly understand."
"But where we cannot understand we may trust.
As I wandered in the wilderness of "ups and downs,"
as I descended from Transfiguration Mounts to deep
Valleys of Shadows, and then asceded again, and
yet was never quite lost, I learned more and more
how to trust; until in time I came to KNOW that
'all things work together for good' to those who
work with them."
"All nature works, and then rests; works and rests.
I caught its rhythm and worked and rested with it.
When I felt that inertia stealing over me, I rested;
and while resting my power recuperated - the
tide rose in me."
I truly believe the secret to a fulfilling life is to find
your balance. For this, one of the things you must
practice is listening to what your
body tells you. If you're tired, then you may need
to take time-out to unwind: read a book, meditate,
take an hour off from your hectic schedule and
do something relaxing, like taking a bubble bath or
a short nap.
When you see your life in synchrony with nature then
it is much easier to go with the ebb and flow of
I hope this helps you to come more in contact with
yourself and take the time to smell the roses!
