When you dig in your heels, you can easily get off balance. The body is built for balance. When you exert your will and override the natural balancing tendency, you can remain strong for a while, but some opposing force is now working against you. There is no other way, for that is the way of physical force. You could, of course, flow with the one true Force that powers all, but paradoxically, this requires letting go. When the wind no longer pushes a boat off balance, it returns quite naturally upright.

You are so very loved.
