“Going with the flow means holding onto your goals lightly (even though they may seem very important) and being willing to change them if something more appropriate and satisfying comes along. It is that balance between keeping your destination clearly in mind, and yet also enjoying all the beautiful scenes you encounter along the way, and even being willing to change your destination if life starts taking you in a different direction. In short, it means being firm, yet flexible.
If you have a lot of heavy emotions riding on whether you attain your goals (that is, if you will be upset if you don’t get it) you will tend to work against yourself. In your fear of NOT getting what you want, you may actually be energizing the idea of not getting it as much or more as you energizing the goal itself.”
Shakti Gawain, in “Creative Visualization”
