Sometimes in life you really do have to go with the flow. Successful people know this. They know that in order to be a success within the flow that they are in, they must adapt their self to the flow that they are in. Not everything is within our control to change or manipulate. All we can really do is change ourselves within the context of the changes around us. To do this can lead to success. When you look at the king of pentacles, ponder this idea.
Remember as you go with the flow, that the flow has many branches. The flow is as a river with its current ebbing ever forward. This river has many outlets. As an outlet approaches that is desirable to you, you can maneuver towards it with the force of your intentions and will. Each of these represents an opportunity, a choice. There are many flows to choose from in the Universe, and be it known to you that each will eventually reach an ocean.
So go with the flow. It will in time take you where you need to be. It all empties into and contributes to the universal oneness. Going with the flow can lead you to this ocean. Resisting the flow slows you from the ocean. When there is much resistance, when entire societies resist, much turbulence ensues. There are many rivers, many flows. If the flow you find yourself in is incongruent with your desires and happiness, make a choice. Make a decision. Edge yourself over to one of the branches, or perhaps move yourself to another river all together. Be in a river, a flow with like-minded people to achieve maximum happiness and enjoyment in life.
When you obsess, you are denying the flow. You are resisting a truth. The truth is that this which you are obsessing over exists in the false reality that you have created. You created a reality in which this object has a heightened sense of importance. So you cling tightly to this. You don’t allow for the flow. Release your grip. Surrender to the river and to the flow. If this thing you have been gripping is important, if it is intrinsic to your wellbeing, it will follow you in the flow. Trust. Let go and flow. Successful people know when to let go of an idea or a concept that they are clinging to, and edge their self to the next one, or another one. Truly successful people know when to let go.
Keep this in mind when you see the king of pentacles card. If the king of pentacles is an archetype of success, where did this success come from? Did it come from resisting? Or did it come from going with the flow and reacting to it as appropriate when appropriate? Ask yourself where are you in the flow of your life? Is it a flow that is congruent with your needs, or should you find another flow to be in?
