Gently Down the Stream

Today, take a minute (or more) and think about how to “proceed gently down the stream.”

In “Wisdom of the Tao” by Wayne Dyer today, he says, “Get in the flow of life and allow yourself to proceed gently down its stream.”

Do you know what instantly appeared in my mind?

“Row, row, row your boat, gently down the stream, merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily; life is but a dream.”

So, there you go!

I’m always talking about perspective and how we perceive things at different times in our lives.

As a little girl, I skipped around and sang this carefree rhyme.

As an adult, it has just become philosophy.

I’ll end with a poetic translation of the 15th verse of the Tao by Witter Bynner.

“How can man’s life keep its course if he will not let it flow? Those who flow as life flows know they need no other force. They feel no wear; they feel no tear; they need no mending, no repair.”

Have a beautiful merry, gentle day!
