Teaching from Mother Nature.

The little "serpent" resting at the bottom of the Grand Canyon is the Colorado River.

Being just water the river knew that she was no match to bore quickly against the solid, strong and tough rock to find her way west toward the Pacific Ocean.

So she took her time.... around 35 millions years. Patience, perseverance, adjustment, will and adaptation at their best. A great lesson.

On the other hand the massive and tenacious rocks are telling us that, by letting go - that is not resisting- wonderful things  like the Grand canyon can be achieved. Another wonderful lesson.

Can our ego  learn from the Grand Canyon ?

Mother nature has zillion of wonderful wisdom teaching to offer. Just take few minutes and contemplate them around you?

Mindfully yours;
