You hear a lot about flow in the Universe. Flow of energy, flow of time, flow of prosperity, lots and lots of flow ideas. And once in a while you will hear somebody talking about being out of the flow.
Here's the thing.
The nature of the Universe is flow. Everything, everywhere is always moving, always changing, always humming with that vital flow of energy that keeps the whole world moving. You can no more be out of the flow than you can be out of the Universe.
It just can't be done.
But, you sure can make yourself feel that way. You can struggle through each of your days trying to keep your energy bottled up inside, fearing that when its gone there will nothing left for you. Letting yourself get ground down by the flow of the energy around you. Eventually, of course, you use all your stored energy up and then you have to get more.
And that getting of more energy is a whole lot easier if you have been practicing getting energy from the flow of the sea of energy around you, rather than resisting; fists doubled up into knots striving to hold onto something you view as finite.
The water in this stunning image is flowing, replenishing itself with its movement and its agreement to non-resistance. The beach on the other hand is made out of rocks, startling in their contrasting resistance.
Yes, the beach is made out of rocks, its just that the rock in the photo is the only one left. the others have already been ground down into sand.
Which path would you prefer to follow through life? Water or rock.
