Have you ever watched a water fountain and been mesmerized by the shoots of water that go up and down and up and down and up and down? Sometimes I become so mesmerized by the process that I pick out a little strand of water and see if I can keep up with its flow. Of course, I lose it in the process as it disappears in the pool of other strands of water shooting up – ultimately regenerating itself with the abundant pool of water and the power of its source.
“What goes up must come down.” It’s a common phrase. When you think about it from a scientific standpoint and consider what we learn as young children about gravity (and also experience it from our own bodies as we get older), that makes sense.
From a purely philosophical standpoint – what if we believe that what goes up stays up…and continues going higher? Isn’t that what we want in life? Whether it be our learning, our growth as humans, our understanding of life and its principles, our growth in spirituality, in health, in our relationships, our finances, our career trajectory and overall balance in life?
Ultimately, we ask ourselves, “How do I continue excelling in the areas of my life that are important to me?”
Most of us will probably agree – we do hit those moments of “what goes up must come down” in things we want in our life – whether it’s a setback that happens or a general mindset we fall into, it does happen.
How do we overcome these challenges? As I watch these little strands of water shoot up and down and regenerate in the bigger pool of water, I notice this bigger pool creates the energy and support to elevate the shoots of water going back up again. Think about the pool of resources you have in your life to elevate and support you – to push you up so that you go higher and higher in areas of your life that are important to you. What resources of support exist for you?
We all value these resources in life to elevate us to new heights and ultimately enrich our lives.
