“Is there really such a thing as a state of flow? Has science really unlocked the secret to mental focus or higher performance?
If we follow the trajectory of modern “so-called” experts in flow and performance, then we enter a marketplace where we can exchange our self for a super-self and our life for a super-life. We’re told that flow is a heightened conscious state where we gain superpowers allowing us to outperform others and rise to the top.
What if true flow isn’t derived from more effort and output? Join me now as we see beyond the pseudo flow of performance, and learn that true flow sets us on a course, not for doing, and not even for being, but for seeing?
This is the podcast/audio version of my second most popular post from my blog at Thrive in Exile. I’m making it available as a podcast to allow those who prefer to listen to content the opportunity to access this vital perspective. It is my prayer that this short recording will open up a deep inner experience that will lead you into a transformative journey. If I could give it away, I would, but since I can’t, the best I can do is describe the gift I can’t give.
So many of us are struggling to find peace, not only on a global scale but also at the personal level. There are countless religious and other types of frameworks that are offering us peace, but they always come with a catch. We get little doses of peace here and there, but for the most part, most of us are not able to live in a consistent experience of peace. We’re told we need to try find peace, or get peace and two divergent paths have emerged as the way to peace: via our doing, or via or being. In this podcast and post I will show you why seeking peace via either side will end in a short-lived experience. I will prove that we’ve gone after peace all wrong. I define peace as an integral, multidimensional Flow and you will be relieved to know that I have pinpointed it’s only location. The question is do we really want it?
