All at sea?

The sea of life is in constant motion; no one can stop its ever-moving waves. The stupid man drowns in his effort to cross; the Master walks over the waves; but the wise man swims in the water.
(A saying of Hazrat Inayat Khan)

Swimming becomes more difficult as the conditions get tougher. However we can learn techniques and develop tools to use that enable us to cope whatever the conditions. Developing mindfulness helps us get more from life. Whether we run a business, a family, or simply want to live above the circumstances rather than drown under them. Becoming aware, learning to respond rather than react, to be less judgemental, using the flow rather than paddling against it, these are the attributes of mindful living
