My energy and effort dammed up behind an obstruction, or channeled off in another direction without my consent, for someone else’s purposes.
I become a stream, curving around a stone.
Or the pressure builds. With enough force the stone may be pushed over or moved aside, or it may be destroyed in the process.
In that time, I am going nowhere. I must decide, is this a good use of my energy and effort? Is this the best way to get were I'm going, to do what I'm meant to do?
The stone has as much right to exert it's will upon me as I have to choose my own response.
I acknowledge obstruction.
Today, this time, I choose to flow around.
Perhaps, it will be smoothed and reshaped a little by my passing. Perhaps, I will learn something of determination by touching its steadfastness.
