Every Opportunity

Water finds every crevice, every opening, every opportunity, and flows forward.  When it meets a blockage it gathers and waits, eventually breaking through by persistent erosion.  And so we can adjust our mentality to be the same kind of force.  Given enough time, water engulfs the earth. 


But I don’t have a million years to overcome what is in front of me.  I had a lifetime, and now less than half that.  If that—since I don’t know how much time I have left.  A lifetime is all the time any of us have.  And that time is a different amount for all of us. 


In the meantime, while I am here, I will find every crevice, every opportunity, and flow forward.  When I meet a blockage I will gather myself and wait.  I will eventually break through by persistent erosion.  It is simply dedicating myself to a mental force.  I’ll never “engulf the earth,” nor do I ever want to.  But I will, while I am here, find every crevice, every opening, every opportunity.
