The guidance is hidden everywhere…

Life dealt me a blow yesterday, a wake up call, so to speak. I began trying to force my way towards creating what I wanted and then, after lots of strong feelings and reflection – I was reminded of the poem Row row row your boat.

Row, row row your boat
Gently down the stream.
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,
Life is but a dream.

Let’s take a look… (maybe you agree with these distinctions and maybe you don’t).  At any rate, it’s worth pondering these simple reminders.

Key distinctions:

  • We are rowing OUR OWN boat… not someone else’s boat
    • work on yourself
    • work on your own experience
    • don’t work on something / someone outside of yourself
  • “Gently” “down the stream”
    • gently follow the flow
    • efferting is not suggested
    • go down steam, not up stream
  • Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily
    • be happy
    • feel good
  • There are 3 “row”s and 4 “Merrily”s
    • play more than you work
  • Life is but a dream
    • to me, this means, life is what we choose – like a lucid dream.
    • I wonder what that line could mean for you?
