Going with the flow isn’t about being passive or laissez faire. It’s not about just letting things happen “to you.” It’s not aimless wandering. Going with the Flow is a co-creative act.
“The Flow” is the ocean of cosmic intelligence. It’s the substance that carries creation forward. Prana. The Divine Feminine Principle. The Flow is life energy itself.
“Going with the Flow” is about responding to cues from the universe.
“When you go with the Flow, you’re surfing life force. It’s about wakeful trust and collaboration with what’s showing up for you.”
Traditionally, when a woman tangoes, every inch of her body is flowing into the male partner’s lead. She’s not passive in the least, she’s highly responsive. Another metaphor: Hockey. The great Gretzky said he “just skated to where the puck was.” His winning strategy was to go with the flow.
So we can set down the zealous goal-chasing. Burn the detailed five year plan—it’s all up for transformation anyway. And you can certainly worry less about the right move/wrong move—just keep moving towards LIFE. Wisdom always goes free form.
The art of Flow: deep listening, high intentions, and courage. You’re daring to catch a wave of truth, again, and again, and again.
Go with it.
