Letting Go with Guy Finley

Letting Go with Guy Finley


Enter into the Flow of Life

posted by Guy Finley

Question: Some things I’ve tried to accomplish in life have been such a struggle, and yet some other things have just “fallen into place,” almost without much effort. Does this have any bearing on how we should choose to do things? Should I stop planning my life so much and just try to “go with the flow”? I’m almost afraid that if I stop planning so much, nothing will happen!

Answer: There is never a moment (although I know it seems not so) when the flow of which you speak is not all around us and available to us. We do not create this flow, but enter into it. This means that since this flow exists before my consideration of even needing it, there is something in me that is obscuring it, blocking it. This should be our task: to awaken increasingly to what in us is out of the flow. Find this and the flow presents itself. Where possible, experiment with giving up the planning as best you can, and watch what happens. It’ll be tough, but worth it.
