A print of a lush jungle river flowing to the left of the image. The colors are black, mint green and hot pink.

Letting Go

Visit a river or stream and bring a flower. Place the flower in the water. As you watch the flower drift downstream, keep your eye on it for as long as you can, keeping it in view until it becomes a tiny spot in the distance. When it has drifted out of sight, close your eyes for a moment and then open them up to everything that is still around you; the plants, the sun, the wind, the water.

This can help you remember that everything is in motion and on a course. Even once something has drifted out of sight, it is still on journey to somewhere new.
