A skillful sailor or surfer knows how to work with the ever-changing winds and waves, adapting and shifting the course as needed. We too can become skillful at navigating the elements, riding waves of joy and sadness, compassion and anger, wanting and resistance. It starts with letting go of the hope or expectation that someday there will be no waves. Once we accept that change and challenge are a part of life, we can work with and adapt to those waves, surfing with presence, flexibility, and power.
In mindful presence,
You can't stop the waves but you can learn how to surf.
