|Swimming between Hope and Fear|
Control and balance; the path between opposites. Swimming the path in between--not choosing one over the other. Relaxing our clinging desires, which lead us to frustration and anger, when we're disappointed. Letting go of fears that are limiting or holding us back. Using everything on the path to keep moving forward without getting sidetracked. The key to swimming between hope and fear is just letting go and letting flow. As we loosen the grip of our expectations, doubts, and fears, we can relax into the vast expanse of true peace and equanimity, which always moves us forward. This very narrow passageway--between hope and fear--is a direct route to equanimity, compassion, and openness.
