Following the flow of time

I read the other day that a person should pursue their goals now, as time will not wait for you to “just get that one thing done” before starting towards your goals. Although timing is everything in Chinese Medicine, it doesn’t mean that you must wait to progress forwards. Even if now doesn’t feel like the right time for a certain step, you can always plan and set other wheels in motion that will move you further towards your desired destination.

In Daoist philosophy, a core concept is allowing yourself to progress towards the future by following the way that presents itself to you. While there is often not a direct road between you and your goals, allowing yourself to follow the path that intuitively feels correct, will very likely take you in the right direction.

Time flows – allow yourself to follow the flow.
