About this ebook

Going with the Flow is your guide for creating harmony in your life by bringing yourself into alignment with the forces of Nature that govern the world. It’s good to know about them, because you can no more escape their influence than a swimmer in the ocean can avoid getting wet. Going with the flow is knowing that a vast river of energy flows through life and we are drawn along with it. Learning to swim in the direction that the energy is flowing is the key to creating a happier, more harmonious life for yourself and the people you care about. It is really up to us though, the river does not care if you swim with it or against it.

Aligning your efforts with the larger flow gives you intuitive insight into the deeper nature of the world. These insights would otherwise have been obscured by the stresses and strains of the everyday "unexamined" life that so many of us lead, preoccupied as we are with the world and everything going on in it.

This little book may be modest in size, but it is large with underlying meaning and the potential to make your world a better place be alive in. It teaches you how to raise your awareness of the patterns of Nature that can be seen and felt in the world around you, and to sense it with impact, and to contemplate it all without judgement.

What is stopping us from living this way? Perhaps it is the tendency in us all to settle into established ways of thinking that your social group believes is right. Venturing outside of these conventional ways of thinking is to risk being ridiculed by the group. Are you brave enough to think for yourself, and perhaps resist the need to tell everyone your newfound wisdom?

Going with the flow is like a woodworker understanding that he must work with the grain, not across it. It is to understand that everything in the world is subject to change; often gradual, sometimes sudden. We need to know how to move with the changes and not resist them, not be too attached to anything, since nothing lasts forever.

Our willingness to put ourselves into alignment with the flow of Nature puts us into harmony with it, and gives us the momentum of those larger evolutionary forces. We become the kind of person that others might describe as ‘a force of nature’.

Come along on the journey into the Flow. It is the key to opening the door to a clearer, brighter, more expansive reality in which you come to see yourself not as "a drop in the ocean, but the whole ocean, in a drop", as the poet Rumi said.
