Life Is Like A Flowing River

The Flow of Life

Life is like a flowing river. It gives the impression of being one continuous flow, but in fact, it is moving from one cause to another, one effect to another, one state of existence to another.

The river of one moment is not going to be the river of the next moment, and so it goes for our lives as well. We are continuously changing, as proved by the scientific fact that the cells in all living beings divide, die and form anew.

What Are The Qualities Of Being Mindful?

Being Mindful

When we are mindful, we’re both spontaneous and well prepared because with a little more understanding of our minds we can act more intuitively:

  • We can speak up more often, while being aware of our words.
  • We can immerse ourselves in whatever we are doing, no longer anxious about the outcome because we are confident in the intention.
  • We are fully present to the moment and in our own minds and bodies, rather than constantly disappearing into the past or future of our minds.
