To Go With The Flow

Only dead fish go with the flow.

The modern idea of ‘flow’ is too often misplaced.

It’s devoid of intentionally,

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

You act, not from any point of principle,

But primarily on how you feel at any given time

It’s resigned to the whims of circumstance.

When in actuality, flow has direction

Flow has intention

Flow has structure

A bird flows, but it knows where it’s going.

At our core, we Humans need direction

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

Left to the mercy of the conditions

A case of gone with the wind.

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