Go with the flow.
You sit here quietly enjoying yourself, forget your active self. Such is not a denial of real self.
There is no real self to deny, as a self that persists always in one pattern, one mood, one degree of intelligence, one turn of affection.
The living you is always changing. Live now except yourself as you are now. There is no one to always blame no one to be always praised.
Each moment you are lifted by a different wave, blown by a wind from a different coast line. Each moment you are responding differently, as chemical combinations change and result in different reactions to changing external stimuli.
If winds seem too strong, know they will subside. If waves seem too high remember the calm below the waves.
The tree on the shore accepts both storm and calm. You must accept, perforce, go with what happens and be part of it.
With no ego to set its self apart, you will find accommodating much more pleasant, than trying to insist the universe accommodates it’s self to a certain ego that feels it’s self too be the eternal, unchanging centre of the whole show.
This little Boat will survive the storm, as it suits its motions to the wave’s heaves and the winds most furious blasts.
