Floating On

So the other day while getting ready for work a song I listened to all the time in high school came on my Pandora Station (Rooney Station)…”Float On” by Modest Mouse. Ever since then, I cannot get it out of my head (but why would I? It was, and still is, an amazing song!). It is such a simple message but one that can be hard to understand: that everything will be OK.

Bad things will happen to us. We are not perfect, the world is not perfect. But, we will get through it….we float on. We float on and are OK. The stream takes us to our next point and we take the previous experience and apply our lessons learned from it to the next event.

In my yoga books I am reading for my RYT, they talk extensively about letting things go. That the way to attain enlightenment, find your true purpose, learn who you are, is to take things that happen to you and realize that it isn’t the end of the world. You have two options: 1) let it get you down, take it as an offense to who you are, dwell and live life miserably. 2) acknowledge it, smile, and move on through life here on earth. The first will undoubtedly make life miserable and the second gives you joy and health.

Modest Mouse had it right just float on. Nothing is the end. You will be ok.

And we’ll all float on alright
Already we’ll all float on alright
Don’t worry even if things end up a bit too heavy
We’ll all float on alright
Already we’ll all float on alright
Already we’ll all float on OK
Don’t worry we’ll all float on
Even if things get heavy we’ll all float on alright
Already we’ll all float on alright
Don’t you worry we’ll all float on alright
All float on
