A Daily Meditation

“The River of Life”

Looking for a way to be more present in your daily life and with your family? At the end of the day, during dinner with your partner, or in the car on the way home from school, ask these four questions: -Where today was I inspired by something or someone? -Where today was I surprised? -Where today did I find myself being challenged or stretched to grow or think in new ways? -Where today was I touched or deeply moved by something that came into my life? In the Basque tradition, these four questions honor the Four Rivers of Life: the River of Inspiration, the River or Surprise, the River of Challenge and the River of Love. According to this tradition, it is impossible for us to truly stay in balance without jumping in and bathing in these four rivers on a daily basis.
