There are many ways to travel down the river of life. Imagine riding in a boat made from the energy you have gathered from your experiences and relationships as well as the energy you are creating with your beliefs, feelings, and thoughts. Seeing its shape, color, and size would reveal your inner world. Noticing the construction of your energy boat could give you insight.
Many of us have traveled the river of life in boats with holes; we attach ourselves to other vessels to keep ourselves afloat. That connection makes us feel safer, but we were still taking on water, slowly sinking, unable to catch the current that would take us to our potential.
