InnerSelf's Daily Inspiration

May 31, 2023

The focus for today is:

I am willing to trust the river of life to carry me along safely.

Let us imagine that life is a river. Most people are clinging to the bank, afraid to let go and risk being carried along by the current of the river.

At a certain point, each of us must be willing to simply let go, and trust the river to carry us along safely.

At this point, we learn to “go with the flow” — and it feels wonderful.

Today's inspiration was adapted from the article:
     A Spiritual "Paradox”: Setting Goals or Going With the Flow?
     Written by Shakti Gawain

This is Marie T. Russell, publisher of, wishing you a day of being willing to let go, and trust the river of life to carry you along safely (today and every day)

Comment from Marie:
The best experiences in my life have been those where I was willing to take a risk and "just go with it", not letting fear, or doubts, or "ifs and buts" hold me back. If you look back at your exhilarating life experiences, you probably will find the same thing.

Our focus for today: I am willing to trust the river of life to carry me along safely.
