Go with the Flow

Life is meant to be a continuum of giving and receiving.

(Listen to my song “Pour Me Out” on YouTube by clicking HERE)


Mark 4:24

“The measure with which you measure will be measured out to you…”


What Jesus was saying is…the more you give…the more you receive.

It’s the law of the Universe.

It’s the law of Love.

It’s the way of the Trinitarian God: a non-stop-Flow of giving and receiving.

God creates this way.

All things blossom then wither in giving themselves in the making new life.

Jesus demonstrated this self-emptying model with his whole life.

As St. Paul described it, “He emptied himself, taking the form of a slave, coming in human likeness; and found human in appearance, he humbled himself, becoming obedient to death, even death on a cross” (Philippians 2:7-8).

This is the path of kenosis that we are all called to give-ourselves-over-to.

Enter the Flow…and love everyone and everything.

Give freely.

Only then will you truly be you.
