Just like the waters of a naturally occurring stream flowing into an outlet, then a river, then an ocean, so is our life. Flow is the natural way of life.
My life flows like water, and so does everyone else’s life. When we feel that we are stuck and going nowhere because there is so much going on in our personal life, and the world around us is full of natural disasters, we must remember that life always flows. We and only we, are responsible for feeling the way we do because we have not taken responsibility for our life’s outcome.
We Sabotage Our Natural Flow
We expect someone, or something, or a situation to change; we expect a miracle. And while we wait for that change, we become increasingly stagnant, until stagnation reaches a point where we lose track of time, of goals, of our life.
Then we start to feel as if there is no hope. We look around and see so much sadness, anger, and despair. Unaware, we are absorbed by this negative energy that weighs us down deeper and deeper. So deep that it starts manifesting negatively in our physical body. We become ill with no scientific explanation. Only questions… why is this happening to me?
But There Is Hope…
Until we snap out of this nightmare and acknowledge that only we have the power to change our life to its natural flow state, we will stay in the dark. Each one of us has the answer within. It only takes willingness to acknowledge our feelings and the courage to face them… head on!!!
Our life is like a natural stream of water that flows into a river and widens its scope. Then forces itself into an ocean of blissful freedom, if we let it.
Yes, flow is the natural way of life; and only YOU can control that flow.

Using your analogy I feel like I am stuck in an eddy. There is a lot going on in my life right now. I am keeping my head above water, but it does make me wonder when the water will go calm. I suppose though that I need to accept the way things are and work and move on with my life.
Remember that flow is the natural way of life. When we find ourselves in turbulent waters, for certain something is calling out to us so that we pay attention to some area within us that we are neglecting. Accepting the way things are at the moment is wise, but we must also take action so ease the flow.
Our higher self always knows what is going on that we need to take care of, so we must learn to listen and trust. Meditate on this and begin to trust your higher self to give you answers. Soon you will know what needs changing or re-routing… soon you will be back in the natural flow.
I hope this brings a little light Owain. I would love to hear from you again to see how you’re flowing 🙂
Encouraging post. What you have mention are absolutely true. It’s matter of how we see each situations in our life. Yes, problems do come but it should make us stronger. With that, we learn from the problem instead of getting worried about it. Do write more, you will definitely encourage more people here. Thank you.
Thanks for your thoughts Bala :)) Yes… using a negative experience as a learning tool certainly makes us more resilient and better able to cope with that problem, turning it around to create something positive!
You make some great points and this post really makes you think. Even though we cannot control every aspect of our lives, we control how we perceive things that happen to us.
Hello Kayla :)) I agree with you that we cannot control every aspect of our lives, and I also believe that we are responsible for many negative outcomes because of the decisions we make. If we start being more self-aware and going back tracing the timeline of our thoughts, we will see that we could have made better choices. Fortunately, as you wisely stated, we can control how we perceive our experiences!
Absolutely true, Penelope! It takes some adjusting to our current reality, AND we ARE in control of how we perceive that reality. Thank you for your thoughts 🙂
We are responsible for our happiness but also have no control over some circumstances, so it always takes adjusting to whatever reality we live in. Some people achieve happiness in even the worst situations (refugee camps, etc)…so it really is a matter of will and responsibility. thanks for the post!
That’s a great thought Paula! We must always make it a point to make our life better. Along what lines have you considered making changes?
I agree with you, people have more control of their life than they seem to realize. I have recently decided to start doing something to make my life better.
