My Life in Flow

As a young person, being ambitious I wanted to achieve much. Discipline and control were basic to whatever the job was at hand. Now as I look back over my life as a 70 year old man, my living seems to reveal a story that was predestined to happen.

When I meditate on the experiences I notice that I was most effective in life when in a state of flow, when I didn’t know who was in control and discipline wasn’t an issue, experience was the issue and the joy in the experience. I think the Buddha’s call this mindfulness.
