“Christopher Robin came down from the Forest to the bridge, feeling all sunny and careless, and just as if twice nineteen didn’t matter a bit, as it didn’t on such a happy afternoon, and he thought that if he stood on the bottom rail of the bridge, and leant over, and watched the river slipping slowly away beneath him, then he would suddenly know everything that there was to be known, and he would be able to tell Pooh, who wasn’t quite sure about some of it.” A A Milne, from ‘The House at Pooh Corner’ (1928)
As I read this, I suspect that this is the knowing that does not need to know.
The knowing that is deeper than the facts and situations that trouble us, or the questions that are still unanswered.
And we are offered an invitation to smile and enter the flow, not just dip our toes in the water.

We can learn so much from water, and the world around us, if we are open.
