Thank you, this is helpful. I need to re-read everything on Growth, though.

Great session!  Awesome new and helpful info, so grateful to Troy.  (Also, my close friend really had just broken their leg... )

Piping up from Team Growth: "How the Goal can serve you" is an interesting idea (as in, the Goal is you, but you are not [just] your Goal).  I like this take that Growth can "serve you" by helping one make the best (or get the most out of) anything.  I'm also suspicious of "it's all for the best" (as in seeing bad stuff as all a "growth experience") analysis -- it can justify a whole lot of nonsense and harm -- but I see this point clearly, and appreciate it.  The "can-do" of Growth resonates with this Warrior and a Spiritualist attitude, as does working to confusion/exhaustion/breakdown of course lol (I'm in Perseverence too, yikes!)  I wonder what else Growth getsya in superpower form.  Hm.  This is indeed a refreshing change for me away from the perspective of collecting self-actualizing Experiences for Evolution, a colonial paradigm if I ever saw one, especially when combining with those rather narcissistic tendencies to "personal growth" we inherit as a matter of course from our occultist/New Age heritage here, and we all just have to deal with now -- like as just straightup post-Christian whiteness, as usually in my case.   I REALLY like the renewal of Overleaf study that this seems to signal, thanks, @Troy!  Can we try some more please when it's time?

@Troythanks so much for this great Michael Speaks.  My goal of FLOW has always mystified me.  Sure I feel good when I'm in the flow of things - doesn't' everyone? - but beyond that I had no understanding of it.  Now I really feel like I comprehend and can really use this information to help myself out and perhaps even flourish!

I cracked-up when Michael described many of their most "high-strung" fragments who have a goal of Flow😅  Yep, that's me! 

 

I was so controlling and high-strung when I was a child that my mom would often say to my sisters "Leave that boy alone-you know he's crazy!" LOL!

 

But it's nice to see the progress I have made with owning my true goal of Flow (I used to want to be in Dominance) and being in my positive poles and experiencing Flow and Freedom/Peace.

 

This was such a great discussion!  Thank you, Troy, and everyone who asked questions.

 

It has helped me to understand my goal much more...and goals in general.

Wow, it is really mind-blowing session! My goal is flow and it has been really hard to catch it, what it means. I often have found myself from stagnation, when I use much energy with no results. Or everything is going well, until there is some disaster around the next corner.

In short, those with a Goal of Flow are learning how to RELAX.

 

Not as an escape, not as avoidance, not as a way to deny, but as a way to BE.

 

If you are in a car accident and your body is limp, there is far less damage to the body. If there is a storm and a tree is extremely flexible, there is far less damage. If a building is movable and can sway in an earthquake or high winds, there is far less damage.

 

THAT is Flow.

 

If one has FLOW it means that this life is less about learning how to row and more about learning how to steer.

 

The forces of life are strong like a river and one can either hop in a boat and see where it takes you (freedom) or try to swim up river against the flow and essentially stay in the same spot as the current keeps you from moving forward (stagnation).

 

Flow does not mean that life bats you around chaotically in wild winds and raging rivers, but that can often seem the way it is if one is not learning how to steer themselves along the currents and winds.

 

You have seen both sides of yourself in this life: the part of you that feels that life kicks your ass, and the part of you that feels like you caught a nice uplifting wind and you are coasting gracefully forward now. You may always have a sense of dread because you know that life is often an EBB and FLOW, and that the breeze will either die down or turn into a hurricane.

 

But you can let go of the dread because the breeze always returns, too.

This is very comforting. I agree. I am learning to relax.

@Nick Sweeney (Babylove), what you said cracks me up!! I'm your sister!!! LOL. My husband is a Scholar in Flow and no matter how I approach him, when he's doing something (and he's always doing something... either on the computer or watching TV), I interrupt his "flow" and he gets impatient (Impatience is his 2nd CF which affects his Mode in intimate relationships). Unless it's for a hug but even then there's a moment where he needs to adjust his "steering". 😉 I'm thinking one's steering with/through Flow might relate to one's Attitude or perspective which allows the action that is required to move more freely. Just some thoughts... 🌀

@Maureen, you just described me to a tee!🤣

 

I've gotten so much better with interruptions and being more flexible and adaptable...chilling the fuck out!

 

But I still have my moments.  I catch myself pretty quickly these days and LET GO...then the steering can happen.

 

I have Impatience as my primary CF. Quite regularly I have to take a breath and drop intolerance...and then flow...so much better these days.

 

Having Flow and Impatience is so absurd!  

 

Most of my life has been getting impatient and blowing my top because people and life are interrupting my Flow and peace!

 

"Leave me alone, goddammit, I'm trying to be peaceful!!!" 🤣🙄😇

hahah i LOL’d at “leave that boy alone you know he’s crazy” 🤣 especially with a child that must’ve been too funny

 

also, i’m learning that i think i try to live in Flow because my life does experience a lot of waves and it feels easier for me (probably why my goal is Dominance in this lifetime haha) but i’m learning to be ok with making clearer decisions and deliberate choices to be my best rather than just flowing along

Hahaha, @TexB would tell you this is me, too! I get irritated when he interrupts me when I’m in the middle of something, and I’m also always in the middle of something. He complained about it so now I try to make time if he needs it, or I deal with what he needs when I arrive at a stopping point. I didn’t know this was a Flow thing. 😂

I am late to this party! Just catching up on this interesting conversation. I also am a "Flow-be" and I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one who is confused about it. What stood out to me here that I have not really considered is the negative pole of Stagnation. I have struggled (and stagnated) in work for 20 years and always suspected it had to do with my goal of Flow... but really what's happened is I've been in a bit of stagnation all this time. It is hard to be in the business world with a goal of Flow, but maybe that's part of the learning. I am definitely the kind of person who doesn't want to work too hard. 

 

@Nick Sweeney (Babylove), In addition to a goal of Flow I also have a CF of Impatience. Fun times! I actually never realized how opposite those two things are, but now that you point it out... yeah - that raises the degree of difficulty a bit. I guess that's why they call a CF an "obstacle".
