“I would love to live like a river, carried by the surprise of its’ own unfolding.”
Whom among us has not felt a sense of being stuck in life. Whether about career, relationship, life direction or a deep inner sense of not moving forward or being open. At certain times in our lives this is bound to occur. And in varying degrees from slight to more intense. Most often this tends to occur because of old self judgements that only serve to put us between a rock and a hard place. How harsh we can be on ourselves!
And what a wonderful image is a flowing river! Continuous fluid movement, endlessly unfolding. We humans are endlessly unfolding beings. There is always more to emerge of the deep complexity that is us. My approach to therapy is grounded in this belief. Appreciating the complexities of who we are, and touching into these nuances lightly, with curiosity. In this way we can be that river that flows, allowing ourselves to be carried, to live peacefully and fully in the moment, whatever that moment is, while creating an open channel to all that is possible in our unfolding.
