“One can not reflect in streaming water. Only those who know internal peace can give it to others.”
— Lao Tzu
In our modern world, we are continuously served a never-ending stream of information. If we remain conscious and take space to power down, restart, and debug our internal system on a regular basis, we can process all of this incoming information properly. If we never unplug we may never synthesize the vast knowledge being offered. The pull of these swirling currents can often take us out to sea in such a way that we lose our sense of self-direction. We lose our connection to the ground.
STREAM reminds us to lay back and to look up at the clouds. Let it tell you to relax, reset, and o allow yourself to open the persistent STREAM of your own imagination. All the while keeping our bodies firmly planted on terra firma.
I invite you to take this talisman and give it a spin to help you ground. Let the stream wash around you, over you, under you, through you. Give yourself time to absorb the information from the stream, be it alluvial or algorithmic.
Row, Row, Row your boat
Gently down the stream,
Merrily, Merrily, Merrily, Merrily
Life is but a dream...
