Sailing the Ship of Life

March 2, 2017 at 12:45 pm 2 comments


Internally there is a belief that I am the captain of my ship and yet often I find the ship of my life sails in whichever direction the wind of challenges, situations, relationships, circumstances take it.

I can’t change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to ensure I reach my destination. It’s not what happens that determines my future, it’s how I respond to what happens.

Let me truly accept that am the captain of my ship and the responsibility that lies with that.

Then as the winds of challenges blow and circumstance arises – let me learn, adjust, gain experience and become wiser – until I learn to master the winds.

Then through the choppy waters of life and the stormy days I, the captain, will sail through and reach the other shore – it is my destiny after all.


Om Shanti

    Our determination and focus can act like the Rudder of the ship. Although always under the water and invisible, it gives the ship stability and steering ability. A good captain never looses control of the Rudder.
