Let It Flow When You Let Go

This is Sheriff Peanut Butter Brickle. When you imagine that something is going to be beautiful, but you’ve never actually seen it before, do you really know how beautiful it is? You may see pictures. Read books. Watch movies. But do you see with only your eyes?

When we heard of the waterfalls at Fall Creek Falls State Park, we imagined them to be beautiful. Is a waterfall ever not beautiful? Am I ever not beautiful?

But we could not have imagined the beauty of this place when we got here. Because only then could we hear the waterfalls, see the waterfalls, feel the power of the waterfalls…all at the same time. It was like a movie, but we were in it.

The waterfalls are certainly tall. The persons said that they are the tallest waterfalls east of the Mississippi!

The waterfalls are certainly breathtaking. But it’s more than that. The beauty around them, like the rust colored creeks, and the trees and the sound of the birds actually adds to their beauty. And the waterfalls’ beauty adds to the creeks and the trees and the birds.

Could we see all of that in a video or on the computer without actually being here? We could not. And I wondered. When are persons actually ever present, fully present in their surroundings? What do they actually see when they are on their phones? What do they see when they are worrying or thinking about what else they need to do?

What can cause a person to let those things go? Those weights that bring them down? The blinders that cause them not to see what’s in front of them?

When you let it go, whatever it is, only then will the beauty flow. Only then will your potential shine thru. Only then can you feel and see and taste what’s around you. It’s true. Some people can be in front of a waterfall and not even see it.

You may have to work on letting go. You may not be successful the first time. You can do it, even if you fall. You can get rid of what’s keeping you from the real life.

You can’t float on a rock. Don’t be a rock. Don’t be stubborn.

Realize that in order to be your best, you have to give your best. That means your best to people around you by giving them your attention. Your best to beautiful things like the waterfalls by seeing them and feeling them in the moment. Let it go. There’s a show out there. You have a ticket. Don’t let it go to waste.

We will be watching the weather this weekend. Where are we headed? Digby is navigating the way! Stay tuned.

The Waterfall In A City

This is Sheriff Peanut Butter Brickle. I always try to make myself available. You know…for advice. For arresting. I try to be a sort of place to come for the persons and Digby when he doesn’t smell so bad. I try to be a refuge. Like a waterfall.

A few days ago, we ventured out to a city called Paterson, New Jersey. No. Not because we are city type folks. But because we heard about a beautiful waterfall there.

Yes. A waterfall in a city.

It’s not often that two opposite things are together. But here, a long time ago, persons decided that it would be a good idea to get power and make things with the energy from this waterfall. And so they built all kinds of things around it.

The world we live in is a complicated one. But only because persons make it so. Nature and our earth know how to get along. How to make things beautiful. How to live in harmony.

The rushing waters of Paterson Great Falls were used at one time for progress.

But now, the falls are used as a refuge for ones wanting peace and tranquility by what was built around them. The original businesses are no longer there. Big warehouses are empty except for museums. Is this the harmony planned for long ago? Or was it a result of too much progress? It’s something to think about.

Why should we have to escape our daily world and life? Why not build a peaceful life and keep it that way?

Paterson Great Falls is a refuge. And we can be too. Even when the world around us is complicated, we don’t have to let it change us. We can be strong like a waterfall. A waterfall in a city.

Being strong may mean others will come to us when they need refuge. And as long as we are taking care of ourselves, we can be that refuge. We can be a source of strength, of beauty and peace. No matter what.

So be that waterfall today. Never doubt your power. Be who you are and who you want to be. No matter what or who is around you.
