Stop And Feel The Flow
When was the last time you just stopped? When was the last time you looked around? When was the last time you paused to take things in? I love sitting on the sand of the beach and watching the waves. Time seems to stop and I am completely in the moment.
This state is known as flow:
In positive psychology, flow, also known as the zone, is the mental state of operation in which a person performing an activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and enjoyment in the process of the activity. In essence, flow is characterized by complete absorption in what one does.
This week stop some time. For no other reason then to stop. Stop just to feel the flow.
In the words of Abraham Joshua Heschel:
“Spiritual life begins to decay when we fail to sense the grandeur of what is eternal in time. Our intention here is not to deprecate the world of space. To disparage space and the blessing of things of space, is to disparage the works of creation, the works which God beheld and saw “it was good.” The world cannot be seen exclusively sub specie temporis. Time and space are interrelated. To overlook either of them is to be partially blind. What we plead against is man’s unconditional surrender to space, his enslavement to things. We must not forget that it is not a thing that lends significance to a moment; it is the moment that lends significance to things.”
