    Thank you for this conversation and for the look into the theme of this book. I have actually listened to you two times, because as you were just on the final sentences, I got a phone call from an old friend. Also, I have had time to think about “happiness” in reference to “flow”. I have to admit that I will have to “ponder”, as it were, this for a while because I do not quite follow completely. I know that “flow” makes sense because happiness, I believe, has to come from the constant experiences in life. The idea of following through every day with patience in our various experiences makes sense to me. I believe this comes to us each day to produce satisfaction and happiness, And, I would enjoy more insight into this important subject. Agai, MANY thanks!!

      I enjoy my discussions with Sarah. She has an amazing ability to examine the information and then apply it to her daily interactions. Thank you for sharing your thoughts on The Book Dialogue – very much appreciated. I especially liked your words “the idea of following through every day with patience…. “. Always easier said than done – it is a work in progress.

  3. As I started to listen to the conversation, I was reminded of the previous discussion of Viktor Frankl’s book. I tend to have a bit of a hard time with “flow.” I’ve always been a “rage against the machine” type–which of course only leads to unhappiness. As I listened further, I did recognize that my flow state comes when I’m writing. What I particularly appreciated about the conversation was validation that multitasking is impossible! Despite the brain research, we’re still expected to do it.

      I am so glad that you listened in, Liz. I have never, ever been able to multitask!! It seems that “flow” is a state of being in tune with ourselves, which comes from our life’s experiences. It is a hard-earned reward, indeed. The story that came to mind when I was listening to Sarah’s discussion points was the mythology of Inanna, which has a modern interpretation of the journey an individual must take to reach wholeness. Sarah and I appreciate your support and encouragement of our discussions, Liz. Sending hugs along with our thanks.
