Step #3, Flow – Day 1 We begin a new week and welcome a new theme: flow. Perhaps at this time, more so than any other time in our memories, we are considering the concept of flow and its impact on our lives, our psyche, and our well-being. The flow of time. The flow of air. The flow of resources. Something so simple has become so complex.
“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.” We will take the message of this quote from the Tao Te Ching into meditation today as a way of generating gentle acceptance for what’s happening here and now, right now, in the body and mind. Should you be looking for more of a teaching on this particular step of the practice, you can find additional meditations on Step #3 here.
