I was at the funeral of a remarkable woman today. She was a formidable force of nature, especially as a white water rapids canoer. Thanks to her friend, who shared a few stories, I received a powerful teaching and inspiration. She spoke of how the woman gave her lessons out there in the rapids and would tell her to "stop trying so hard". The friend summed up by saying that "She knew how to let the River take her...." Wow.
There is some profound wisdom in that! Feeling grateful.
