the story of the flee & the elephant OR we can't control existence


While being confronted with life’s ups and downs, we sometimes experience a certain level of powerlessness. Which is a natural instinct. It happens for example when we have to face something happening to someone we care for and we can’t control the circumstances. It makes us feel out of control.

How can we surrender and let go of this feeling of being out of control?
How can we accept that we can’t control existence?

I always like to think of the metaphor of the flee & the elephant.
Us being the little flee and life being the elephant.
We have no control over the elephant and can’t change it.
We just have to surrender to it, inhale, exhale and let go.
And enjoy the ride!
