The boat and wake analogy

A new year has dawned. 2016 is behind us. Whether it was great, good, OK or bad, it’s time to put it behind us. Why? Well…

When a ship sails, it leaves a wake. This wake does not push the boat forward, but is left behind. In this insightful short video, late philosopher Alan Watts compares a ship’s wake to the past. The past cannot push our future forward any more than a wake can push a boat. Our past is behind us. So let go of those lingering, nagging events of the past and live in the now.

Here’s to an Awesome 2017.
