When we are first learning to swim, we tend to struggle and fight with the water. After a while, and sometimes almost by accident, we discover that if we just absolutely let go and relax into the water, that miraculously, the water itself carries us. We have discovered a vital spiritual principle: when we let go to the water— we float. We are carried, supported and sustained by the water. As with the water, so with our life. When we quit struggling with our life, our life begins to carry us. When we let go, we realize that our life loves to support us. We are not here to support our life; we are here to let our life support us.
