Flow and Ease Dude!
What if I can do this with flow and ease?
What would that look like?
Flow and ease is our natural way to be. Unfortunately the modern world tries to persuade us every day that this isn’t so, that life should be a struggle. And that’s a lie.
By a ‘struggle’ I don’t mean that there aren’t times we have to work hard for what we want. I mean that we don’t have to experience negative emotions, such as fear, overwhelm, stress and boredom. They are not a requirement, there is always a better way.
And before I go on, I want to be clear I often fall prey to this lie, I’m far from being a Zen master! Only this morning I was writing a document and felt time slipping away from me and started to feel a rising stress that I wouldn’t be able to do all the other things I had on my todo list today! But believing it is a lie is powerful.
Can I tell you it is, in fact, completely, 100% a lie. No. What I’m suggesting is it will serve you to believe it is a lie. It opens the door to asking more empowering questions and finding better answers.
Such as: What if I can do this with flow and ease?
This is powerful because the way we see the world creates our world. If we believe things have to be a struggle, we will find they are. If we believe life can be full of flow and ease, that’s what we will experience.
Will this question always give you a perfect answer? Will you always find flow and ease? Probably not.
Will this question very often give you a better answer? Yes, if you are willing to look.
So keep asking: What if I can do this with flow and ease? What would that look like?
I’m noticing I have a lot more to say on this, but I am at 27 minutes and I still need to post this article so I shall stop here - flow and ease dude, flow and ease!
Where can you bring more flow and ease?
