Meditation on Flowing Waters

When flowing water...meets with obstacles on its path, a blockage in its journey, it pauses. It increases in volume and strength, filling up in front of the obstacle and eventually spilling past it...

 

Do not turn and run, for there is nowhere worthwhile for you to go. Do not attempt to push ahead into the danger... emulate the example of the water: Pause and build up your strength until the obstacle no longer represents a blockage.

Shot at Lusk Creek, Kananaskis Country (Alberta Rocky Mountains). Tons of giant dragonflies were whizzing about - a very beautiful spot for a summer picnic.
