“It’s like opening a door that’s floating in the middle of nowhere and all you have to do is go and turn the handle and open it and let yourself sink into it. You can’t particularly force yourself through it. You just have to float. If there’s any gravitational pull, it’s from the outside world trying to keep you back from the door”
About 10 1/2 minutes into this 19 minute video Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi makes a statement (hint it relates to 10 years) that is causing a space within me asking is it really true?. Would love to know your thoughts…
And at about the 14 1/2 minute mark he shares a slide that lists the 7 characteristics of “Being in the Flow”. I am wondering if they feel familiar to you – and if so – can you share with us your experiences.
And this idea about bringing Flow into our day to day experiences – how wonderful is that. It’s been a focused intent of mine and I love that it has also been brought so powerfully into the scientific realm.
