Many of the snags in life come from resistance. You resist change, even though it's inevitable. You resist responsibility, although it is necessary. You resist truth, despite the fact that it will set you free. In order to experience the fullness of life, with as little stress and strain as possible, you have to go with the flow.
The natural order of things will always prevail. When you go with the flow you will recognize when resistance is necessary and when it is futile. When you ground yourself in truth, you will always know the who, what, when, where, and how's of change.
Clarity comes in peace. Peace cannot exist when you are fighting against the only force strong enough to defeat you...you. Life is designed to be a journey of insight and inspiration. How can you see if you're wearing blinders? How can you experience if you ignore the obvious?
Don't fight the current, it will only make you tired. Go with the flow and find freedom and liberation.
