There are books, there are teachers and many more aids available for those who are experiencing the ‘dumps’ – and a helping hand through numerous means is available. However, in this overwhelming focus on the coping mechanism – what gets completely ignored is the concept of extending the great period of your life to such a degree that challenges retreat into the corner, and good times become the norm. So many of us know how to deal with failures – and yet, we simply do not know how to handle success.
I used to be the finest example of this. Throw an insult at me and I know exactly how to deal with it. Give me a compliment and I may mutter, stutter and look away. I had become such a professional at problem solving that once the issue was over – I simply didn’t know what to do with myself and my subconscious mind would keep creating further issues – so I always had something to ‘do’, something that gave me a false sense of ‘purpose’.
It is through the help of my guru that I realised this deep negative pattern. I realised that I kept attracting challenges into my life because I had become a compulsive ‘problem-solver’. What was the solution? He simply summed it up into four words, “Flow with the flow.”
At that time, it seemed like words – but now, it has become my reality. Flow with the flow is simply the ability to accept beautiful times in our lives – and believing we deserve more and more of it. Here are some of the ways in which I have used it in my life…
When my health was not okay – I used to do everything I could to get it back on track. Regular visits to my homeopath, eating right, working out and what not. However, after I understood the concept of flow with the flow – even when my health is great, I continue to ensure that I do all of the above.

The same has been the case with wealth and professional goals. Instead of constantly going through ups and downs, I have been trying to find ways to cherish and give so much energy to the achievements that by default the opposite end of the stick, failures, are repelled from my life. For the first time in my life I feel a sense of effortlessness. I feel I am floating in the river – and not fighting it. There is no need to create issues. There is no need to solve them. There is peace. And yes, I am simply flowing with the flow.
