Flow Is Accepting Things And Putting Them To Good Use Before Passing It On !

Everything that comes to us, comes to pass or, more accurately, for us to pass on. Not just the money in our pocket, but wisdom, objects, ideas, even opportunities, all come to us, so that, at the right moment, we can pass them on. This is called flow. Being in the flow means being aware that the river of life is flowing to us at every moment. Being in the flow means accepting whatever comes and putting it to good use, before passing it on. Going with the flow means allowing whatever comes to move on freely, without holding on in any way. If we do not pass on, we are trying to block the flow, and that's when we feel pressure in our life. Pressure is always self-inflicted. Every time you feel 'under pressure' look at what you need to release and to pass on to someone else. Once you do you can ...relax...again.

Get Best Potential In Others By Having Faith In Them !

Faith in others wins cooperation from them. When we are working together, we need to have faith in the capabilities of those working with us by seeing their specialities and using them too. This will naturally create a healthy environment where everyone is working together as a team. One thought that would help us in practical situations to work as a team is to have faith in the ones we are working with. When we are able to have faith, we are able to create a positive environment where everyone is able to express his or her best potential. The task would be successful and there would be benefit and personal growth for everyone working in the team.

See Positive Aspects In Each And Every Person !

To be connected with people's specialties is to have faith in them. Faith is more based on our perception of people rather than just their behaviour. When we have the habit of seeing specialties in each and every person, we are able to create space for the use of these specialties. This automatically reflects our faith in them and their ability to contribute. Let us make a firm practice of seeing at least one positive aspect in each and every person we come into contact with. Then we will be able to use this specialty in a practical way and help the other person also to use this specialty. In this way, we will be able to increase his capability and out faith in him.

Remember If We Have Taken We Have To Payback !

If we recognise that all inner and outer effects or results in our lives have causes which can be found within ourselves, then we understand karma or the law of sowing and reaping. If we are aware that we have just awoken to this law, and that we are consciously live with this law in our awareness we will also be aware that we were asleep to this law before - perhaps for a long time, possibly many births. It is therefore highly likely we tried to break the law. What we did not know was we cannot break this law. We cannot take anything without having to pay it back at some future stage. We may receive but we may not take - there is a difference. If we have taken then we must payback. Any form of pain or discomfort - mental, emotional or physical - means it is payback time. The universal debt collector has come to knock on our door. Accounts are being settled. If you can regard all pain, from a bump on the head to an emotional crisis, as the settling of a debt, you will be using the oldest wisdom to respond to life in the most enlightened way. The destination, once all accounts are settled, and all debts paid, is true peace and real freedom. Peace of mind and freedom from all pain.

Cooperation Will Successfully Accomplish The Task And Benefit Everyone !

Cooperation comes when there are pure feelings and good wishes for all involved in the task. Every task we take up needs to be for the benefit of all. When we are working for something in which there is common benefit, we are able to easily gain others' cooperation. This also brings good wishes from all of them, which will naturally help in the success of the task. When we take up something new and important, we need to make sure that there is surely something that will bring some benefit for everyone involved in the task. This attention helps us get the cooperation of those around us for the success of the task.
