Learning to let things flow is key in life

One of my biggest life lessons has been learning to let things flow as they are. We hear people saying just let it flow all the time, but yet how many of us know what this really means?

Life seems to be what can be referred to as an eternally changing/evolving/mutating phenomenon that is governed by universal principles and laws that  have been in place since the beginning, and they have yet to change.

To flow in life is to be in FULL  acceptance of what life brings to you.  In the Blacks Law Dictionary 4th Edition the word Acceptance is defined as; The taking and receiving of anything in good part…. The key here is the words good part.  To be in full acceptance has all to do with the attitude of the receiver.  To accept with a positive attitude keeps a person universally in honor, while accepting/non-accepting with a negative attitude will have negative affects usually leading to dishonor.

Acceptance of all phenomena allows ones life to flow like water while other options such as resistance to life’s situations/phenomena will cause life’s flow to be restricted causing pain and suffering within the individual which is simply a natural response to resisting life via; worry, anxiety, FEAR, jealousy, envy, etc.

Acceptance can also be linked with the theory of being present and in the here now. In order for ones consciousness to rest in the present/here now, one must be in full acceptance of oneself, which seems to be a grand challenge for humanity today. We seem to have so much unfinished business with ourselves due to attachments to our past experiences etc. We must learn to accept and see that we are not our mind, thoughts, body, or senses. Once we experience and accept this foundational principle then we are ready to allow life to flow through us like water in this grand school referred to as the Universe.
