We live in a universe of spiritual, psychic, and physical energy by virtue of which all living things exist through their ability to transmute this universal energy into something individual.
We become endowed with the ability to transmit our own energy field, our individual unit of power. Humans are energy transformers; we are alive and developing in proportion to how much of this universal energy we accept and how freely it flows through us. The better we transmit this energy or allow it to flow through us, the higher grade we occupy; the more alive and contented and effective we become. Flow is the secret to happiness.
Flow is the natural, effortless unfolding of our life in a way that moves us toward wholeness and harmony.
To truly walk the path means to be consciously engaged with what you’re feeling and experiencing in in every single moment. So when you get up in the morning and take a shower, are you already thinking about a busy day ahead, or instead feeling the fullness of the moment? Enjoying the water as it splashes down over your skin?
If you conduct action – any action – and you’re not fully, consciously engaged in what you’re doing and not aware of what’s going on around you, then you’re not present. You’re lost in a program and living in an illusion. In such instances, you’re not really living at all! Being in the Flow of life allow one to be truly Present,Presence.
Flow is natural because we personally do nothing to cause it to exist. Whether or not we give it our conscious attention, it just is. Sometimes we may hardly know it’s there: when obscured by our fear or anger it can run underground like a river. But when we move into greater awareness and trust, it emerges in all its strength and power.
Flow is effortless because when we learn to swim with it, its currents move us easily, smoothly and gently through life. Our stress, struggle, and uncertainty drop away, and our joy, peace, satisfaction, happiness, and effectiveness increase.
Flow is an unfolding because it furthers our potentiality—it brings us into life as it is meant to be lived. We often have an “aha” feeling of familiarity, of rightness, when we’re “in the flow.” And, flow does not only involve our personal unfolding but the unfolding of a larger pattern in which we play a part.
Flow has a tremendous power to transform our lives. Like water, it is dynamic and still, strong and receptive, persevering and yielding. We can’t push or force flow any more than we can a river; gently and surely, it has its wa.
Flow speaks to being part of something bigger than ourselves. It runs counter to the sense of being out there alone, of ending where our skin ends. Not only does quantum theory substantiate this interconnectedness, so do the findings of the major spiritual traditions.
Till the next time.
