"It is a well accepted fact that the person who swims against the current of one's thought will never know the strength of it. Existence is an unending stream of extenuating circumstances which invites us to go with the flow. When we flow with the river, we do so in the knowledge that water shapes its course according to the nature of the ground over which it flows and therefore our experiences will shape our learning.
There will be times to surrender and times to resist, yet nothing shall ever vindicate one's refusal to experience the stillness of life's waters, particularly when storm clouds gather and emotions rage. Only when you can place your hand quietly upon your problem without creating additional ripples of distraction will you know where the answer lies." William Forde: August 12th, 2015.
