"Nothing ever goes away until it has taught us what we need to know."
~ Pema Chodron ~
No matter how dramatic life becomes, it is always followed by and patched here and there with moments or more of calm. We feel we can't make it, and then relief comes. We are stretched to our limits, and then the stretching stops. We are tumbled by waves and then popped to the surface of the water- just so far, and no farther.
Letting go is the lesson and the answer- to stop pushing and fighting and wait, and trust, and keep our faith, knowing that relief is coming, that we will be pushed only so far, and then popped up, and slowed down, and let go.
When I am pushed to my limits I don't have to push back. I wait and trust and know that relief is on its way.
