The word “flow” has a lot of meanings; it may refer to going along with something, moving steadily or even the pressure of a flowing liquid. However, the flow that I am referring to is another type of flow. It is the one that I feel the happiest in, it is my desire in life and it is the thing that I am constantly searching for.
Have you ever been in a crowd full of movement and noise, full of energy and life? But you were disconnected from your surrounding. It is not because you were not Interested or social. It is because you were so immersed in the thing that you were doing, to the point where you felt that all of your attention, concentration, mind, feelings and spirit are strongly fixed on that thing. Yes, that feeling, that moment is what you call “Finding My Flow”.
When I find my flow, to me it is as if I have found myself, my long lost self, which I have been searching for constantly. Myself that was so busy with life and its demands. Myself that gives up things for others and forgets about its own needs and wants. Myself that cannot breathe and take a break.
When that moment of reconnection with myself, me & I happens, just then I understand the true meaning of peacefulness, security, pleasure & simplicity. It is the time when my mind, soul & body finally reconnect and meet at the same place, at the same time and at the same moment. Synchronized just like a melody or a rhythm, just like when an orchestra plays. At that moment, my heart flutter and knows that I am in my natural habitat; the place which I belong to, doing the thing that I was made for or to be more specific, doing the thing that was made for me.
Just like now, I am in my flow writing this piece with joy and amusement. How about you? When and where do you find your flow?
