Vacation is about letting everything be, just as it is… at least for a moment. We know we are on vacation when we are no longer trying to change anything at all. We simply are, and everything is… and we are content. We realize there is nothing left to do except be. In this way, we vacate our professions of trying and trudging up stream. We let go and, finally, float effortlessly down stream. The river takes us where we need to go, and we let it. We get a vacation from any notion that we are in control, because we truly are not. Life is. Surrendering to this is the most peace any of us can ever hope for. Enjoy this; enjoy life exactly as it is right now. This moment is the best gift you can ever give yourself.
