The Intersection of Easy...



Lately I’ve had this dis-ease (call it malaise, if you prefer) that has only recently come into focus. I’ve been trying to trace it roots. Wonder how long I’ve had it; how long it’s likely to last. Is it going to do permanent damage? Could it end up being disabling in some way? Surely, I don’t deserve this - It’s uncomfortable


In a life that has had its share of struggles, challenges, mishaps and trauma (no kidding on the latter), what I’m noticing is that there are a few things that come easily for me. Easy? What the **** is that? (Let’s get clear on one distinction, ‘Easy’ and ‘without effort’ are not the same thing.)


Here’s what I realize, intent as I am on the struggle, striving, pushing and driving:


That I do my very best work in the zone of what comes ‘Easy’ for me –

‘Flow’ sits clearly at the intersect point between my...


Knowing and wisdom,

Creativity and groundedness,

Doing and being,

Breathing and stretching,

Expanding and being enough


As I reflect upon the myriad conversations I have with clients, colleagues and friends,

I feel compelled to ask:


· Just how much of our identity is tethered to struggle and achievement?

· Are we discarding and discounting that which is special and uniquely ours?

· How does worth(lessness) have us by the tail?

· What would it be to live and work from that which flows out of us easily?

· Isn’t that which comes naturally, creatively and with ease exactly what we want to value and be doing more of?


Like the fine tuning of a non-digital fuzzy radio signal, I plan to take care to turn the dial to that just-right place where Flow lives – that energy-infused, creative, vital place where what I know, who I am, what inspires, what wants to happen and where my natural gifts lie sit solidly at the core of my work and my life.

Balancing in the "flow" is important to me. I have identified "balanced flow" as a key value. Your list above:

Knowing and wisdom,

Creativity and groundedness,

Doing and being,

Breathing and stretching,

Expanding and being enough

reflects the constant expression of "life in my world."

Thank you for your mission and for reaching out to us all.
