A few years back, when life was really tough, and everything was tight and all clamped up, I desperately sought ease.
I knew that if I could let go of my fears and resistance, things would have to lighten up.
But it was so hard.
In fact, it was SO hard, that when I tried to toss a bottle with a message into the mighty Mississippi River on a cold winter day, the bottle wouldn’t flow downstream. It got caught in an eddy, and circled around and around, going UPSTREAM, of all things.
Meanwhile, only yards away, the Mississippi flowed easily down toward the Gulf of Mexico, powerfully moving millions of gallons of water just past me, churning downstream. I stood there, defeated, and watched a giant log float by, moving swiftly and easily downward, while my bottle spun upward.
In response to this story, a smart friend told me that it was possible for me to find ease, to discover a way to let things move easily around in my life. I started meditating, deep breathing with trippy yoga music, trying to free my mind.
A few weeks later, walking along the river, I saw this:
…..just laying there on the path, and I knew it was a message from me, for me. The EEs that I had been seeking……right there on the ground, staring up at me.
It was in me, not outside somewhere. Within.
And it worked. I let go a little, and bit by bit, day by day, found ways to let the ease in and let the stress out.
Ever since, I notice Es appearing in nature, and always take it as a reminder that I control the way I see the world, nobody else does that. And I’m in control – ease or not – it’s up to me.
Nowadays – I’m expecting Es everywhere. And guess what?
