I've been exploring so many different spiritual paths for years.
Trying to live in a better state, become a better person, reach peace and stability in many facets of life.
In all these teachings, practices, ideologies I found one common feature. One things that's shared by all essentially.
That's it. Don't resist, don't strive, don't work your ass off to get to somewhere in life. Just surrender.
You'll realize that it's a huge struggle on its own. Because we have bruised egos, fears, past mistakes that haunt us and plans for future that needs to be accomplished. And we're inclined to panic, mostly for financial reasons and we continue struggling because of that fear or the ambition.
Surrendering is not easy.
But if you're going to master one thing in life, master Surrender.
And happiness follows. I've achieved only a tiny success in surrendering but it already made a noticeably positive change in my life.
Also look around, all the problems that the world has for thousands of years are all because of these so called "achievers or control freaks" that constantly disturb harmony and peace and create a fake progression while trading in our happiness.
I will share things that's worth sharing here and you'll see surrender is the key, biologically, mentally and spiritually.

Yeah, that "go with the flow" "mantra" is golden...
From personal experience, whenever I try to push things, to plan, to have "goals" and try to reach them = mostly fail, but instead whenever I let things go and just be, for a while everything falls into place, one being happier, calm, complete - in a way.
BUT surrender does not equal being too passive or just ignoring things - just don't push, let things come and focus on how you react. We can only control how we react - nothing else.
I would look into stoicism if you haven't already.
One good feeling thought at a time. That's what got me through some serious depression the last few months. Dove into myself, a combination of meditation, self care through natural healing and native american sweat lodge. It allowed myself to truly understand what it means to love myself, for me personally it is to step into my power, by being true to my authentic self. When you're true to yourself you somehow allow others in your life to do the same. The idea that one is selfish for doing so is an archaic form meant to control. Allowing myself the opportunity to truly understand who I am and what I want in my life, my world, has now given me the opportunity to bring forward some very positive and much desired relationships. It truly is when you allow and release resistance, release all expectations that one can grow. Everything that I desire is already there just waiting for me to reach its vibrational match.
It's all about the feeling. Feel good, good things come, feel like crap.. So choosing the better feeling thought is key in my own personal experience.
I live by this I think, control is maddening. Surrender to life, to nature to life to the cosmos.

I had never heard of Esther Hicks, but I just heard this and she said some great things in just a few minutes...

This might be a shortcut to "go with the flow" state.
"Removing the ego allows the subconscious mind to bloom. This is where our spontaneous creativity and instinctual reactions live. It’s the part of the mind that feels no need to spend its energy weighing out options and forming judgments – subconscious reasoning happens automatically and is more “us” than that which needs to pass through all the layers of social conditioning we’ve been exposed to before arriving at our thoughts."
"Although more studies on this topic are needed to elucidate the full effects, the ones conducted so far do indicate certain similarities between the neural changes in psychedelic and flow states. Additionally, with other studies reporting that some of these changes are long-lasting, possibly permanent, it becomes more tempting to say that these experiences really can integrate themselves into our personalities and become... Us."
- or get ADHD, that will fix your flow state - sure, only for interesting tasks at the expense of messing up your "regular" entire lifegrafician
- also "go with the flow" refers to your entire life, not about the "flow" state of doing things...grafician
- Don't you think it's a bit of a stretch to say "or get ADHD".
Microdosing doesn't fix one state to mess up your entire life.Beeswax
- On the contrary this is only a possible side benefit to already proven benefits that help people to have a better life.Beeswax
- @Bee joking about the ADHD post! and continuing to let u know your post has nothing to do with "going with the flow" idea...grafician
- @Bee micro dosing is at best a productivity hackgrafician
spiritual = great
spirited = greater
the moment is magic! start with your outfit or something then work on your attitude
