The River of Life

The River of Life first presented itself in a dream in 1972, when I was fourteen years old. Over the course of the past forty six years, that dream evolved and is now a part of my daily Life. It is one of the foundation stones of my personal, Spiritual Path.

Like many people, I have always had a deep attraction to Rivers. There is something powerful and mysterious about a river. Rivers hold their own stories; some are gentle in both pace and attitude while some are intimidating and appear frightening and forceful. Some whisper while others roar. Rivers can drift or rush, while they always move at their own pace. They captivate the imagination and in so doing, they also stir the Soul.

Rivers contain Life. They may also appear rather dead, but that “death” is merely an illusion.

Some Rivers are dry, some are lazy and some are treacherous and have long histories and reputations of claiming lives.

Some rivers are teaming with fish and frogs, tadpoles and eggs. Others are stagnate and provide homes for mosquitoes and other vectors. And some are tarnished by the toxins and waste of the two legged.

In some lands, Rivers dry up in the heat of summer. In others, they may freeze in the cold months, forming icy sheets that may—or may not—restrict the flow of water within the Rivers depths. And in their frozen states, you may be able to walk on the transformed water.

Some Rivers are dark, or muddy, or murky. While others are crystal clear.

Some may have layers of silt or sand at the bottom, while others are comprised of stone or…slime and old tin cans.

Therefore, every river has its own personality.

And if you spend enough time with a River, it too will change—sometimes dramatically during the seasons or numerous times during the course of the day. Then again, it may remain fairly consistent for stretches of time in both its appearance and attitude.

So, Rivers are alive and they also represent Life and they carry within them, the nectar of Life: Water.

The River of Life is a living, dynamic metaphor for our lives. It is a mirror to the Life outside of us, but more importantly, it also shows us the Life Energy that is flowing within us. It goes far deeper than this…for in your River (and it is very much, your River) we can see, feel, experience and interact with the aspects of what I call “The Trinity of the Self”—Mind, Body and Spirit.

You are about to embark into something very powerful and sacred.

Welcome to the River of Life…Your Life!
