Surfing the tides of the Universe. What does that really mean?
Imagine yourself out on the ocean in a lifeboat. You see an island in the distance. The tide seems to draw you to it. If you find yourself out in that lifeboat with a paddle you can try to move towards that island. If the tide is with you it will be much easier to row your way there.
However, if the tide is moving away from that island it will take much more energy and struggles to get to that island. The smart thing to do would be to wait until the tide changes in your favor and then try to paddle your way ashore.
How does that translate to the tides of the Universe?
Have you ever found a certain direction you tried to take in your life much more difficult than another direction? Have you ever had something come so easy to you that you didn’t seem to have to work very hard to achieve your goal?
That’s Universal tides at work.
Some things are in line with what you should be doing – the island you should be going to – and the path is easy, almost effortless. Other times it seems like you struggle and struggle and get nowhere quickly. That “island” you are trying to reach gets farther and farther away as the “tides” seem to pull you from it. It’s almost like the Universe is telling you that’s not the island to land on. It’s not the path you need to take. It’s not the direction you should go. The Universe is waiting for you to see the path you should be on. The one the tides are moving towards in your favor.
The tricky part is to determine which tide is the right tide. Maybe you ARE suppose to go to that island but need to have a little patience and wait for the tide to turn.
Granted, some things are worth the struggle. And sometimes there isn’t time to wait for the tide to change. But if we can figure out which paths we can wait for, have the patience to not only wait for but LOOK for the right direction, and know the difference between what we can not wait for and what we can, what is really important and what is not quite so, the we will find ourselves moving more in sync WITH the tides of the Universe, not against them.
And that makes for much easier travel on your life’s path.
What do you find yourself doing more? Struggling against all odds? Or successfully surfing the tides of the Universe?
