People, we, I are like the different states of matter. Sometimes it is good to act like a
liquid, flowing past obstacles effortlessly. Sometimes to act like a solid, taking a
stand. Sometimes to act like a gas, ephemeral, filling the container, soft and
compressible. Being able to move from one state to another helps dealing with life’s
opportunities, challenges, and blessings.
Can you identify your state right now? Can this analogy be taken further to include
times when environmental factors dominate over our desires? When water gets very cold it freezes, changing from a liquid to a solid. When water gets very hot, it changes from a liquid to a gas. And don’t
forget, we are over 50% water.
