7 Tools For Getting Into Flow!

Living in a state of Flow means letting the current of life take you. 

There’s something incredibly beautiful about this experience – living in surrender to the flow of life, allowing expansion to overcome you, being grounded without being rigid. 

And yet, flow isn’t always our natural tendency. It’s actually something we have to cultivate. With all of the uncertainty in the world, our instincts can tell us that we need to “hold onto the branch.” We’re afraid of being swept away, of losing control – so we contract. 

We begin grasping to control. We look for ways to force certainty as a response to the uncertainty of life. But the irony is that the more we hold on, the more we grasp and control, the more we keep going in a loop.

How Personal Reality Is Created

Although we don’t often think about it, each of us inhabits two realities. One is the physical world, the other is our personal reality. Once you state this apparently simple fact, mysteries immediately arise. If two cameras photograph a tree, star, the sky or a cloud, the photos will be exact duplicates (assuming that the two cameras are set identically), but if two people gaze at a tree, a trained botanist will see something very different from somebody lost n the woods. If you are distracted, you might not notice the tree at all, since looking is a voluntary act, not an automatic one.

Enjoy Now

When are you?

The Practice:
Enjoy now.

Why?

There’s a profound and miraculous mystery right under our noses: this instant of now has no duration at all, yet somehow it contains all the causes from the past that are creating the future. Everything arising to become this moment vanishes beneath our feet as the next moment wells up. Since it’s always now, now is eternal.

Lean in to the chaos to find stability

Because humanity is in the process of letting go of how we’ve actioned in the world to feel safe, now is the perfect time to lean in and collaborate..

We’ve used the mind and its idea of how things “need to be” to control things. We’ve been conditioned to perceive the ways others need to behave, how we need to behave, or how things need to go. This has developed a rigidity in our lives.

A byproduct of forcing that sort of structure is that a lot of energy has been suppressed. Especially, energies of emotions, authenticity, mattering, and of a sense of clarity about who we are and what this world is really all about. 

The chaos and uncertainty we are experiencing in the world is in divine order. It is a friction and a polarization that allows for what has been suppressed to come up and be expressed. If life feels like a challenge in this moment, lean in because even though it looks crazy, it’s actually a great healing for people.

It’s Never An Accident When You Show Up

Your life begins to give you signals that something in your reality isn’t quite working. Your life begins to prompt you to begin to look a little bit deeper. For some of you it looks like a crisis, for others of you it looks like unprecedented success. Either way, life throws you into that which is uncomfortable so that you can get to know who you are beyond the neatly defined boundaries or edges that you have come to know as yourself.

Mark Nepo's Weekly Reflection: For George

What I love about you most

is how you become what you

care for. You are eager to begin,

but in no hurry to leave. And so,

when you offered to build a bookcase

in which my tall wooden Ganesh can

look over me as I dive into the ancient

swirl of secrets that are only secret

because we refuse to become what

we care for—it made me love you more.

It took many seasons and you shared

every step, from the soft pencil design

to taking off my closet doors to make

sure the dream would fit. Then, the

list of materials and the choice of a

proper light, so that every time I’d

turn, I could see Ganesh bow to the

unbendable truth that what’s in the

way is the way. For months, we dis-

cussed the grain of wood, the number

of shelves, the placing of Ganesh like

truth at eye level, the curve of molding

that would crown the ancient god who

I have come to trust as much as I trust

you. The walnut now holds my books

hauled up from the deep. And while

I work hard to see what waits beneath

the masks we cling to, the precision of

your care holds everything in place.

Solving The Mystery Of “I”

If you have ever sat down and seriously asked, “Who am I?” you’ve done something few people ever get around to. To seriously ask the question implies that you don’t already know the answer, and everyone does—or thinks they do. We use the word “I” all the time without finding any mystery to it. ‘I” is the identity that points to you, the individual. ‘I” is the skin-enclosed ego in the body you see in the mirror. “I” is the separate mind that makes you uniquely different from all the other people who walk around with their own version of “I.”

Mark Nepo's Weekly Reflection: To Go Beyond

You ask, “How can I hold on?”
I remember being forced to let
go, to let the torrent take me
beyond all I could imagine.


You ask, “Are we doomed to
repeat our mistakes?” I only know
that when exhausted I could finally
accept that we are privileged to
have more than one chance
to come alive.


You ask, “Why is it all unbearable?”
I want to rock you until you under-
stand that the dark is there
for light to find its purpose.


You ask if I have anything to say.
And I touch my forehead to yours,
hoping something in all that is un-
sayable will skip like a stone along
the waters of the One Mind.

...

A Question to Walk With: Describe something in your life that feels unbearable. How are you living with it?

Two Degrees Makes All the Difference

“And now that you don’t have to be perfect, you can be good.”  —John Steinbeck



I've Been Thinking...

“Preach the gospel at all times. Use words only when necessary.”

I have heard that message echoed in church many times, but I share it with you this morning because I believe it is especially pertinent today.

Spreading good news—being a messenger of what’s good in the world—is something we can all be doing today. Think about it. We don’t even have to speak or write something to spread love, compassion, kindness, or goodness. It’s all about how we show up in the world. It’s all about our actions and how we make people feel.

Are you a messenger of hope, love, and good news? Or are you stuck in a cycle of negativity and doom, pointing fingers and spreading bad news?

Is Your Mind on Overdrive?

The mind can be a useful assistant, helping you to organize your life and complete tasks. It can also be a nag, constantly bothering you with worries and reminders. If not balanced with the calming energy of the heart or the breath, the mind can run amuck, always on high alert, looking for lists to make and problems to solve. Caffeine, in the form of coffee or tea, can exacerbate this. Meditation and deep slow breathing are helpful for slowing the mind down. This takes consistent practice, however. Meditators sometimes struggle to control their thinking instead of allowing thoughts to just pass through and disappear into emptiness. The mind can rebel by frantically running a commentary something like this: “What are you doing?! Stand up! Close the window. Take your vitamins. Make a grocery list. Do the laundry. Don’t just sit there!” Often lists will start forming in your head, and the mind will urge you to write them down immediately lest you forget. It requires an ongoing commitment to peace in order to relax your mind into accepting slow, quiet breathing and empty mental space. Being instead of doing.
