Glide down a river of insight as the Monster Baby podcast takes on the topic of flow. Despite her uncertainties, Lisa offers a great San Francisco-based analogy before Ted brings in the Buddhist image of the Windhorse (1:45). The two distinguish between autopilot and flow (9:26) and then dive into three main questions for the remainder of the episode (10:53). They ask “Where can we experience flow?” (11:43) and “What keeps us from flow or knocks us out of it?” (21:08) before riffing on the discipline of clearing such blockages (29:39). They get to their third inquiry, “What promotes flow or resets it?” (40:56) and close with a nod to flow in Taoism and Progressive Flo on TV (50:49). Step in to the stream and enjoy the ride!
