Going With The Flow: Is It Always The Best?

Going with the Flow: Is It Always The Best?
It’s always easier to go with the flow, than go against the flow.
If you are swimming, for example, swimming with the current is a lot easier than swimming against the current.
Often times beaches have “rip tides” which pull swimmers out to sea. The instinct is to swim back towards the beach, but this can get you killed.
Since you’re swimming against the tide, you’ll get pretty tired, and unless you swim on a regular basis, you won’t last long.
Instead, lifeguards say to swim parallel to the beach, until you are out of the “path” of the rip ride. Then you can swim much easier, even though you may be a bit further out. From personal experiences I can tell you this works.  (Whether swimming in Florida, California, Texas coast, or Hawaii.)
When I was in college,we had to write three essays as part of this English class. Then we had to rewrite one of them, for our final grade.
Naturally, we would choose the best one, since that we’d already got a good start. This would make it much easier to get a good grade than if we tried to completely rewrite one that wasn’t so good.
Any time we do something that’s congruent with our nature, it’s easier than something that’s not.
What is in our nature? Being social. Interacting with others. Sleeping at night instead of during the day. Having urges to meet more people. Having urges to make money or create wealth of some form.
Sure, there are exceptions. Some times we want to be alone, sleep all day, and stay away from the opposite sex.
But for most of our lives, we are striving to improve ourselves along these lines. We want better relationships. We want more income. We want more intimacy. We want more understanding/wisdom.
This is human nature. The human condition.
How you do that in your own life will be based on your own personality, likes and dislikes, history, beliefs, and many other variables.
For most of human history, we never really had to think about this stuff. We just kind of did what was natural, and that was good enough.
But now we’ve got an incredible opportunity. To create things with much more specificity. Much more control. Much more creativity. Much more faith.  Much more passion
Every year there are more and more millionaires, some for the craziest reasons, some for pretty boring reasons.
But if you just kind “go with the flow,” it’s not likely to happen.
But when you choose it to happen, and plan it to happen, you can expect it to happen.
Because it will. Passionate Faith is the energy that drives us to excellence. It must always be so.  It’s a LAW of God….and He never changes!
No matter what “it” is. Money. Relationships. A better career. Artistic expressions. Spiritual Wisdom…etc…  In the end, we get to choose.  How good is this?!
What will you create?

  4. By helping the characters in the lessons reach their goals, learners will gain relevant
    skills in a safe and supportive environment. They may be just as competent
    teaching learners than a fully qualified instructor, but you
    need to be aware they may not have the experience of one. You may not be the kind of persons who will
    end up with many accidents to your credit.

    I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
