More Lightly

Be a fallen petal. Float more lightly on the stream. We cannot speed the current or change its course. We are not in this world to alter it, but to bless it with awareness.

Why try so hard to make a difference? Trying makes us heavier, without affecting the stream at all. Trying makes us sink. But if we are light and free as a fallen petal, floating in our true nature, our very lightness, our simple presence, allows the world to happen fresh and clear.

You are a blessing just as you are. To embrace your own blessedness truly changes the world. Then your action overflows as being rather than doing.

Jai Guru Dev
