Those Who Float

 Gottlieb is wonderful. I may float for a few seconds here and there, but most often, I find that I gently tread water while I'm thinking of floating.  I often say it is better to increase the tendency to allow things to happen rather than make things happen, but I find myself planning and doing things rather than just allowing them to happen.  My thinking is frequently a series of paradoxes which I have come to enjoy.  These paradoxes help me "not know", and this not knowing tends to help me float.  I tend to want to be sure that I am not knowing rather than not know that I'm not knowing, and this contributes to my tendency to float.  Thank you for the opportunity to respond.  Warm and kind regards to everyone.
