The Waterfall

The Waterfall

When the water flows smoothly on the surface,
you don’t notice the undercurrents.
But what’s going on beneath cannot be ignored.

As you go over the edge of the waterfall,
chaos is all around.
What was deep beneath the surface is
thrown outwards, upwards, downwards, and inwards.

The good is mixed with the bad,
the happy with the sad,
contentment with fear.

And then stillness.

Calm is around, and although bruised from the experience,
this will heal.

Now you realise what you about.
You have been exposed to your complete self
and can choose the parts to keep and parts to set free.

The waterfall of your life is great cleanser.
Let your life flow onwards.
