Relax and Flow Like a River

 Welcome to an article by our new guest contributor, Dr. Bina Nangia. Dr. Nangia is a long-time spiritual seeker who works with children.

The river does not even know its destiny and it is born. As a little trickle from the rain waters or the snow melting, it does not know. Creation has sent it forth and it is not even aware of its destination.

Somewhere there’s a knowing, but at that stage it’s all a mystery.

What will the river see, meet and experience?

The script is already there, now it only remains to unfold.

At first the river is keen to know a lot of things, but as time goes by, it starts to just flow. Now it has to be with the flowing, resisting judging, wanting nothing.

Even the urge to meet the ocean and become one with it is a far dream. But there’s a knowing which propels it to keep moving. So much to experience on the way, it gurgles with excitement. The pebbles underneath, the twigs from trees, the music of the winds, it wants to embrace it all. All seems a sweeping dream.

It is reminded of its destination.

The ocean, that’s what I am looking for!

The river is simple. All it understands is its nature to flow, and in complete faith it flows. With the banks as two guidelines it tries to reach out to whoever and whatever comes by.

An oneness and openness to receive and give is it nature. It is so sure of it.

There’s a constant knowing of its nature which keeps it focussed on its goal. An excitement of reaching the ocean and merging with it, but it does not let this excitement lessen its scripted journey.

“The journey is the destination” it reminds itself and continues with renewed enthusiasm and fervour.

One can not buy true inner peace! One who has reached true inner peacecan not be moved from that position.

    I want to add to the quality to as many lives is possible during this incarnation. I am fortunate enough to beand 12 step recovery which I have been for many years. As you probably know the 11th step quotes,”sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood him”which includes all religions or the lack there of or they believe that God is outside our selves or that we must go within. For the sake of keeping it simple around other members of my fellowshipI simply refer to my spiritual belief system as is not a venue where one may discuss the chakras or Kundalini as everyone is responsible for defining their ownabstinence from their addiction and has their own approach to the 11th step.I find myself at the beginning of a long journeythrough the use of yoga and meditationto the activation of the sleeping serpent.the student is now ready for the right teacher to appear.thank you yours truly Brian mcnellis.
