One day you’re going upstream. Nothing seems to work. Can hardly gain an inch. Obstacles galore. Great effort. Drudgery. Worthless.
Next day, downstream. Effortless. Flow. Peace. Easy advancement. Gentle. Worthwhile.
The side of the river going upstream is filled with negative emotions. The downstream side, only positive emotions.
Don’t miss the idea that all of those emotions . . .
are your emotions.
