Major encounters in life and major disasters in life come unannounced. Like a thunderbolt. They shake the very foundation you have build upon. They will question everything that you had carefully crafted, created and collected. They will destroy every idea, ideology, thought you held dear. You feel like floating on a wooden board over an endless choppy sea, smashed by storms of unpredictable tomorrows. You will have no ground under your feet. No land in sight.
At this very moment epiphany happens. You realise the futility of your struggles. The relentless fight against the current. Simple acceptance dawns on you. Not a reluctant giving up but a wilful letting go. And you simply relax into the flow of life. Gently flowing with the flow. Realising suddenly the sheer madness of holding on. And sheer magic of letting go.
