Flowing with life

Between the banks of pain and pleasure the river of life flows. It is only when the mind refuses to flow with life, and gets stuck at the banks, that it becomes a problem. By flowing with life I mean acceptance – letting come what comes and go what goes” – Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

riversideLife nowadays is so changeable and there are so many new things to experience, that sometimes clinging to something old which does not work could imply resigning oneself to a mediocre quality of life. But this could potentially improve if we could flow with life more naturally, as Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj says “letting come what comes and go what goes”.

Letting go is not an easy task. Many of us seek for answers when something important stopped working. One needs a clear and detailed explanation about why a certain situation has happened, which is ok up to a certain extent, but pushing to get what we unrealistically want could mean a lack of acceptance from our side.

It is important to let go of every idea coming to our minds causing a negative feeling. Let’s train our minds to see the good in every moment and when we feel it is necessary, let’s leave behind whatever is not making us happy, so that our lives can keep on flowing
