Being In Flow:Inspiration Expiration

Being in flow is losing sense of self and Daniel Kahneman talks about it in his book Thinking, Fast and Slow. My sons talk about “being in flow” when they are deep in work or a math problem–losing all sense of self, time, space, as they produce their best work that seems to just flow effortlessly from them.

It is another way of describing meditation. There is a lot about the Kahneman book that in my mind connects dots between behavioral economics and yoga philosophy, but that will be another blog post at some future date.

The breath is a constant flow and an awareness of it is Being in the Flow of Being –the state of mindfulness or meditation. This is what Amarnath Mukherjee posts on Facebook: Inhale, and God approaches you. Hold the inhalation, and God remains with you. Exhale, and you approach God. Hold the exhalation, and surrender to God. ~Krishnamacharya
