The Flow

How often in life we find ourselves at the boulevard of uncertainty and when we don’t know which street to take. I’ve heard a countless number of times that just go with the flow in these moments. But the problem is,  Time is like a river, You can not touch the same water twice because the flow that has passed will never pass again. So when you are with that flow, you’ll never get to go back to that point again as time never runs backward.

Life is never stagnation. It is constant movement. Be like water – flexible and adaptive but Perceive, Intuit, see. Just discern whether the flow is taking you to the right sea because the flow may very well end up taking you to the rocks.

I’ve written few words about this below –



I was told, You can reap the benefits of what you sow

And Life’s simple, Just Go with the flow

I was told, It’s important to keep going

So I wandered alone unknowing

But the real world is cold

I got lost in discovering my soul

Then I thought, I was told a lot

And I followed it all

Then why did I get lost

Maybe this is all just a plot

I don’t want it to be this way till I reach the grave

Maybe I’m surfing on the wrong wave

Maybe they were wrong all along

I’m in a river, where I don’t belong

Even a dead fish can go with the flow

Now I feel no shame in saying I don’t know

It will take too many years to build

what I want to own, which I still don’t know

But even by perceiving this

I’m halfway done with the foundation stone

I don’t need to follow the flow

I’ll create my own road.

  1. When we start accepting our flaws, it’s then we start to grow. People will say, they have been saying through decades, but we’ll direct our own flows.
    A soothing post indeed. Thank you for writing this..

    1. Thank you Himanshi 🙂 And True, The circumstances around us are our own and by accepting our flaws we can improve and direct our own path. It’s always good to have certain people who help you discover that path but they can only do so when they are aware of the circumstances, But in the end it’s our own decision.

  2. “Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow know what you truly want to become.” An appropriate quote by Steve Jobs, that adds on to your post. 🙂

  3. My opinion is that we have no choice but drift with the flow of life, but if time is like a river, it intersects and branches at different points in space/time continuum. That’s when mindful intention will change our path, if we choose to alter our destination. Happy holidays. Love your blog! 🙂
