When you find yourself at that intersection of time and space, at that moment of no-thought, you are one with the universe without knowing it. In this state of flow, you are unaware of everything around you including yourself, you have set your conscious thoughts adrift, while you flow towards a deeper way of being in the now. You emerge after minutes, hours, days, from a state of no-time and no-space, refreshed and recharged and return to the everyday world more joyful, focused and strengthened. Some of us find flow in art, some in music, others in sports, some in cooking, some in reading or writing, others in nature, and the list goes on. Each way can be a medium to letting go and entering a state of flow. To learn more about your own way to flow, you can begin by asking yourself these questions:

  • What am I passionate about?
  • Which activities do I like?
  • What did I enjoy doing as a child?

“May what I do flow from me like a river, no forcing and no holding back, the way it is with children.”

Rainer Maria Rilke, goodreads.com
