A Lesson in Flow

In life, there are days when it seems everything goes in it’s own direction, whether we like it or not.  Plans fall through and unexpected things happen.  Our illusion of control can make times like these frustrating.  But when we realize that it’s life itself that is in control, it’s easy to let go and go with the flow.  I recently had a day like this.  It felt like life was pulling me in every direction but the one I thought I was headed in.  At first I was caught up in the frustration of it, fighting it.  Then I remembered it wasn’t me who is in control of it all. I was then able to let go and go with it.  No resistance.  It turned out to be an exciting, unexpected and incredibly flow-filled day, despite the fact that none of it was what I had planned.  Instead of being upset that nothing was “going my way”, I was incredibly thankful for the reminder to let go and go with the flow.

Today, remember, let go.  Go with whatever happens, without trying to control it.  You may just be incredibly surprised and joyfully thankful.
