Birds do it, bees do it


Challenge vs. skill, showing "flow" ...

... and don't quote me on this, but I have a sneaky suspicion even fleas do it. But before you get carried along in the enthusiasm of the classical song, this article has got nothing to do with love. (At least not as far as popular convention goes) I'm talking about flow.

Not the kind you may find in a river, or the molecules in a body of fluid mass, but the universal flow that has been known since the dawn of man. Until recently, not much about flow has been known, even though it is commonly found throughout nature, is one of the very few life experiences considered to be truly shared, and the only feeling known to man that remains the same no matter who they are, or what they did to trigger it. It doesn't matter what the persons sex, age, color or creed that describe it, the qualities of flow remain constant all over the world.

The best way to describe it, as those in the know would agree, is a profound sense of purpose and freedom, of effortless being, and feeling suspended in time and space. People often refer to a flow experience as having the best time of their life.

If you would like to know more about flow, you are welcome to take a look at some of my earlier articles on the subject, like What is flow? and Being in flow that describe the experience in more detail, and define most the qualities of flow that we know, Meeting God or reality and belief that explore flow as a spiritual experience.
