We have two ways to live life, one is crafting it like an architect, manifesting, scheduling, setting goals, and overcoming obstacles to build the life we want. Though, I don’t think it’s possible for people to craft 100% of their life. It is possible to an extent, human beings do have that much potential, which is incredible.
The other way of living is letting things happen. If we consider everything to be a system – us and the people around us are systems, society is a system, the Earth is a system contained within the solar system, the whole universe is a system. We live in systems within systems. Whether we consciously craft life or not, we exist within a flow that is a result of the influence of all systems.
The second option of letting things happen, existing within the flow, is like being in a boat with an oar, and making sure that the boat sails smoothly over twists and turns, without much involvement or aggressiveness. Just being, witnessing, and letting things happen in the flow is more poetic, more mystic.
In Sanskrit, there is even a phrase “Anuugacchati Pravaha”, which means being within the cosmic flow of life. Many people in the world, consciously or not, choose that way of living, which is also beautiful. It’s up to you whether you want to be an architect or a poet or a mystic, that’s your choice.
Today I am grateful to this beautiful, poetic, mystic idea of being in the flow.
