Your Journey on the River of Life

Envision your journey through life as a River of Life that takes you to different scenery (experiences). You can float effortlessly on the River, or it can be a trying experience when you fight the current.

As we progress on the path of remembrance back to God, it is a blessing when we understand the path of least resistance. This involves some dead ends where we think we are on the main current but it takes us against the rocks on the side. These are not wasted experiences as we learn what is right for us through contrast, by taking the wrong current. If we learn from the "wrong" experiences, we come to a high path --- the path of no resistance. This is where we have abandoned any pretense of knowing what is best for us and we allow the main current, the God stream, to carry us without any effort on our part. In fact, after struggling for so long against what IS, we finally recognize that of ourself, we are nothing and that our effort impedes us floating effortlessly. This is called full surrender, and this is the only place you can find His joy and peace.
