Does it feel like you actually generate a specific thought? Or is it coming from that deep awareness of Being and peace that because of placing awareness there, the thoughts that the brain generates are of "the more feeling good" nature?
One of the habitual negative thought patterns that interferes with flow is: resignation. "That's just the way I am. That's just the way the world is." That might sound within the bones of your head like going with the flow, but it's really resignation -- it is resistance to your own astonishing power to feel good.
Good point. thanks. One of the oddities of ego desire and divine will. The universe wants us to want. It's probably impossible to not be part of the divine plan - even when you are blocking yourself it is part of what is. Acceptance is a dynamic approach more that sitting around waiting. Easy for me to say as words, concepts.
It's like we have a ship and are the captain. The universe wants us to go somewhere in it and we can either put up our sails and really take off, or sit in the boat and not realize anything is happening (be unconscious). We can put up our sails and have to accept what the wind is doing.
