To Go With The Flow

Updated: Aug 25, 2021

Only dead fish go with the flow.

The idea of flow is way too often misplaced.

It’s devoid of intentionally,

Assuming that you should go instead, wherever the social current takes you.

You act, not from any point of principle, but primarily on how you might feel at any given time.

It’s resigned to the whims of circumstance.

When in actuality, flow has direction -

It has intention

It's not a decent into chaos, but rather a single focus.

At our core, we need direction

And in a sense are directors of our own experience.

The alternative is akin to a ship adrift at sea, without a captain

Left to the mercy of the changing winds.

Flow is not about being aimlessly adrift, but more about moving seamlessly through time and space.
