When we are in FLOW we are in sync with the dance of the Universe, with Shiva’s dance. In FLOW the dancer disappears and there is only the dance. Listen how Michael Jackson describes his intense FLOW experience when he dances:

Michael Jackson in FLOW

‘Consciousness expresses itself through creation. This world we live in is the dance of the creator. Dancers come and go in the twinkling of an eye but the dance lives on. On many occasions when I am dancing, I’ve felt touched by something sacred. In those moments I’ve felt my spirit soar and become one with everything that exists. I become the stars and the moon. I become the lover and the beloved. I become the victor and the vanquished. I become the master and the slave. I become the singer and the song. I become the knower and the known. I keep on dancing and then, it is the eternal dance of creation. The creator and creation merge into one wholeness of joy. I keep dancing and dancing… and dancing, until there is only… the dance.

Michael Jackson – in ‘Dancing the Dream’

FLOW is a space where opposites merge. In FLOW the barrier between inner and outer worlds melts and there is only wholeness. FLOW is unfragmented experience and consequently it necessarily is a state that transcends the dualistic mind…

Before we develop an ego (this happens around our second birthday), we constantly live in this non-dualistic state but we cannot know it since there is no knower yet. It is a necessary evolutionary step to develop an ego. So please let’s stop calling ego something evil… Self-awareness is a miracle not a curse. Where it goes wrong for most of us in our culture is that we do not develop awareness about the next evolutionary step: to regain the innocent child consciousness, this time accompanied with self-awareness. Carl Gustav Jung wrote about 3 phases in the development of human consciousnesses: the pre-personal, the personal and the trans-personal. Most people get stuck in phase 2. They never transcend the personal level (i.e. going back to the  oneness from the pre-personal phase, but this time with self-awareness).

Jesus refers to this when he says: ”Truly I say to you, unless you become like children again you will not enter the Kingdom of Heaven’ (Math 18:3).  In ‘Dancing the dream’, Michael Jackson wrote a poem about this child in us. I am only giving you the last part here (please click on the image to expand it to full size):

MIchael Jackson POEM
MIchael Jackson in 'Dancing the Dream'

2500 years ago, Lao Tzu already described how people who live in the upper energy frequencies are in FLOW, dancing with the Tao and all others are not:

There are three layers to the universe. In the lower (Tai Ching) and the middle (Shan Ching) the hindrance of a physical bodily existence is required. Those who fail to live consistently in accord with the Tao reside here. In the upper (Yu Ching)  there is only Tao: the bondage of form is broken, and the only thing existing is the exquisite energy dance of the immortal divine beings.

Lao Tzu (c.604 – 531 B.C.

In part 2 of this post I will link what we have seen here to modern research about energy frequencies and to the Abraham teachings. For now, may I suggest you read the words of Michael Jackson again and feel the love and the passion in them. Then ask yourself: where do I compromise with LOVE in my life?  Few things kill the FLOW like compromising with who we really are… Do not judge yourself. Just be aware of the energy in your body – it is your greatest teacher.
