Flow with the Flow

Life is simple!
Why do we complicate it?

Each one of us desires something unique from life.

Why do we compare and contrast our lives with each other?

Life is in the finer details, subtle feelings, sublime memories, aha experiences …

Why are we so entangled in the grosser outwardly compulsions of money, fame and power?
The endeavor is to access Life in its natural, free, serene, at ease, full-on existence.

Why do these not signify our definitions of a happy satisfying enriching life?

‘Flow’ is a journey of tapping into our highest potential of creative energy.


The Parenting Flow

Parenting is one of the most remarkable journey you will embark on over your lifetime! Nothing compares to the bliss of selflessly bringing a new life into our world.

The ‘Parenting Flow’ is your connect to ages of human evolutionary wisdom.

You get an access to the Universe’s magnanimous nurturing and boundless love. In the process, creating a ‘Life Force’ of abundant resonance and vibrancy!

It is way beyond the constricting definitions of art and science of ‘ideal parenting’.

While there is madness, there is a ‘method to the madness’ in all the ‘aha’ insightful moments. No one is a ‘born parent’, yet we are magically bestowed with the requisite ‘parenting instincts’.


Gen-i 2051

This book contains a lot of information about the future!

Please don’t read this if you don’t want to ruin your surprise of the future!!

This book has been sent through a time machine to you, the citizens of 2020, I guess. Yes, time machines were invented in like 2034 by a guy named Haze Laurus. So, start thinking Haze (wherever you are). You don’t have much time left. Start an inventing company or something (oops, I shouldn’t have told you that).

So, don’t tell me I didn’t warn you, okay!

But, if you like spoilers about absolutely anything, then read on…..
