The Flow of the Universe - Enjoying the Ride

The Flow of the Universe - Enjoying the Ride
by Madisyn Taylor
Many people live their lives struggling against the current
while others use the flow like a mighty wind.
The flow of the universe moves through everything.  It is in the rocks that form, get pounded into dust, and are blown away, the sprouting of a summer flower born from a seed planted in the spring, the growth cycle that every human being goes through, and the current that takes us down our life’s paths.  When we move with the flow, rather than resisting it, we are riding on the universal current that allows us to flow with life.

Many people live their lives struggling against this current.  They try to use force or resistance to will their lives into happening the way they think it should.  Others move with this flow like a sailor using the wind, trusting that the universe is taking them exactly where they need to be at all times.  This flow is accessible to everyone because it moves through and around us.  We are always riding this flow.  It is just a matter of whether we are willing to go with it or resist it.
Tapping into the flow is often a matter of letting go of the notion that we need to be in control at all times.  The flow is always taking you where you need to go.  It is just a matter of deciding whether you plan on taking the ride or dragging your feet.
Learning to step into the flow can help you feel a connection to a force that is greater than you and is always there to support you.  The decision to go with the flow can take courage because you are surrendering the notion that you need to do everything by yourself.  Riding the flow of the universe can be effortless, exhilarating, and not like anything that you ever expected.  
When you are open to being in this flow, you open yourself to possibilities that exist beyond the grasp of your control.  As a child, you were naturally swept by the flow.  Tears of sadness falling down your face could just as quickly turn to tears of laughter.  Just tiniest wave carrying you forward off the shores of the ocean could carry you into peals of delight.  Our souls feel good when we go with the flow of the universe.  All we have to do is make the choice to ride its currents.

Great Goddess Isis

Great Goddess Isis

Exhortation of Isis

You are She in the dust of whose feet is the hosts of Heaven,
Whose body encircles the Universe,
Who turns the Earth in its orb,
Who gives light to the Sun,
Who rules the World.

You tread death underfoot.
To Thee, the stars are responsive,
To Thee the seasons turn and the Gods rejoice
And the elements are in subjugation.

You are She that is the natural Mother of all things,
Mistress and governor of all elements,
The initial progeny of worlds,
Chief of Divine powers,
Queen of Heaven,
Principle of all the Gods celestial and the light of Goddesses.

At Your will are disposed the planets of the air,
The wholesome winds of the seas
And the silences of the unseen world.
