Several years ago...for my birthday...I took a ride on a glider.
It was wonderful using only the wind to power my journey!
I felt so free to be supported in this way. There was no effort involved for me...only the choice to take the ride. There was nothing for me to do but ENJOY.
I felt a sense of awe at the way the earth was moving beneath me. Lovely images appeared...seemingly for my approval...and then moved on.
The "big picture" presented itself to me like the answer to a question I didn't even have to ask.
I felt protected, loved and inspired.
Can you imagine what it would be like to have that experience every day?
This wondrous ride IS always and ever available to us,
It's called the Flow of the Universe and it moves through everything! It is a mighty, powerful force and is always working for our Highest Good.
Our job is to recognize its presence and power.
When we fail to do that we try to WILL our lives into happening the way we think they should be. We struggle against the current...trying to make sure WE remember everything important to do...trying to do everything OURSELVES...resisting the magnificent, all powerful, all knowing force that loves us so dearly and manifests this love by arranging our life experiences according to the intentions of our soul.
A Daily OM inspiring message tells us:
Learning to step into the flow can help you feel a connection to a force that is greater than you and is always there to support you.
The decision to go with the flow can take courage because you are surrendering the notion that you need to do everything by yourself.
Riding the flow of the universe can be effortless, exhilarating, and not like anything that you ever expected. When you are open to being in this flow, you open yourself to possibilities that exist beyond the grasp of your control.
As a child, you were naturally swept by the flow. Tears of sadness falling down your face could just as quickly turn to tears of laughter. Just the tiniest wave carrying you forward off the shores of the ocean could carry you into peals of delight.
Our souls feel good when we go with the flow of the universe. All we have to do is make the choice to ride its currents.
Let us embrace this beautiful invitation from the Daily OM:
Move with the flow like a sailor using the wind, trusting that the universe is taking you "exactly where you need to be..."
