The Case for "Going With The Flow"
Spending time with people who love your energy and whose energy you love is foundational to your flourishing
I'm excited to share with you all a profoundly practical piece of life philosophy that has continuously served me well, the more I've implemented it. It's the philosophy of "going with the flow."
So, what does this entail? It implies several things.
Firstly, it means tapping into your inner wisdom and doing what feels intrinsically right. It involves spending time with people who energize you, who believe in you, who truly see you. It's about finding companionship in those who appreciate your journey, your endeavors, and find them inspiring.
Secondly, it encourages aligning yourself with individuals who share common missions, those who regard your meeting not as a mere coincidence, but as a beautiful miracle.
Moreover, this philosophy proposes actively seeking collaboration with those who are equally enthusiastic about working with you. It recommends being in spaces that spiritually recharge you, often within nature's embrace, and immersing yourself in music that truly lights up your soul.
This philosophy also involves gradually distancing yourself from those harboring a persistently pessimistic and critical outlook towards life and others. It implies spending less time with those who see everything as a problem rather than an opportunity for collaborative problem-solving.
Embrace the company of individuals who radiate gratitude, even for the painful experiences in life, recognizing them as invaluable teachers. Seek companionship with those who strive for the greater good, those humble yet knowledgeable, who actively contribute to the world. Choose to spend your time with those who aim to spread light and positivity and regard their role as a friend seriously.
Go with the flow also means understanding when you need time to recharge and spending time with those who respect your energy boundaries.
Furthermore, understand how you want to be supported. Look for help from those who have shown their willingness to assist. Endeavor to devote minimal time in environments and among individuals who seem to offer resistance.
A significant part of this philosophy is to spend most of your time with individuals who appreciate and embrace your unique attributes, your complementary superpowers.
When you apply this philosophy, life becomes a vastly different experience. When you flow with those who share an intellectual, vocational, and spiritual kinship with you, the difference is extraordinary.
I truly hope that everyone gets the opportunity to experience this philosophy soon in their lives.
Thank you for reading this. I hope it has added value to your life, and I wish you a blessed day ahead.
