Alan Watts reminds us that fire is like water falling upward. There is a kind of flow to this life. Our lives really work in terms of things falling together, coming together, falling into place. Sometimes we are trying too hard to make something happen. We want so badly to feel some sense of progress, to feel that we are getting somewhere. We can be so anxious for results that we actually get in the way of the natural flow of things. When we relax our grip on needing to know how it's all going to work out, we can begin to see people and situations in our lives coming into harmony and order in an easy, effortless way.
