Dealing with Changes – The Little Fish Story

Life ebbed and flowed for a little fish named Philip as he swam happily down sparkling streams and great rivers. He shared truth and joy with all he met along the way. Sometimes the flow of water took him through beautiful fields, abundant with pretty flowers, or rain forests with their high, majestic green canopy and cool clear waters. He wondered at the beauty of it all…

There were bends and twists and sometimes it was bumpy as the pace picked up and hurtled him through rocky falls. Then everything would settle down and he’d meander his way under a perfect blue sky.

Philip had no idea what lay ahead.

One day a big wall was built that blocked his way. He found himself in a big pool and could no longer travel through the beautiful landscapes. Instead he explored the reeds close to the banks of his new home and enjoyed playing with new found friends, sharing his love and joy.

Before he knew it, there was a storm and rain fell heavily from the sky. The water in the dam rose and as it did, Philip found himself flipping over the wall and falling down the falls on the other side. Off he swam once again …

Philip had no attachment to outcome, no resistance to change, life was an adventure in which he shared truth in each moment… and in doing so he touched every soul with the peace this brings.
Maybe we could learn from this little fish…
