Fighting the waves

A couple of years ago I wrote about swimming against the tide, apart from Salmon who swim upstream to mate, there is no point to the battle.

King Canute famously sat on his throne at the water’s edge trying to prove his divine power by stopping the waves, of course, he failed.

We fight the ‘waves’ of life when instead we could surrender and allow life to take us. That does not mean resignation or giving up. It just means stopping the negativity that resistance and fighting cases.

True peace as a human comes from surrendering to life not from fighting things.

Our mojo

We all have that spirit, that something in us, impossible to describe, something magical, our own spark.

Mojo is a great word for it.

At times in life it’s on a high and our mojo is on fire and other times we lose it, our mojo is gone.

Like most things, when we don’t have them we focus on it and try too hard to get them. Nearly always resulting in the opposite of what we crave happening.

Once we relax, once we go with the flow, allow life to guide us, something always comes along. Not by magic, but by the simple fact that we have removed the pressure and negativity of trying to force something to happen.

So, when we lose our mojo, relax it hasn’t really gone anywhere, it will come back the moment we let go. Our spark needs something to ignite it and that has to come with the flow of life and when we are at peace.
