What "Karma Serenity Flow" means?

Yoga pose/asana
Have peace in your mind

Karma (/ˈkɑːrmə/; Sanskrit: कर्म, romanized: karma, IPA: [ˈkɐɽmɐ](listen); Pali: kamma) means action, work or deed;[1] it also refers to the spiritual principle of cause and effect where intent and actions of an individual (cause) influence the future of that individual (effect).[2] Good intent and good deeds contribute to good karma and happier rebirths, while bad intent and bad deeds contribute to bad karma and bad rebirths.[3][4] My idea of Karma is to treat people (and animals) the way that you want to be treated. Anyone that knows me can confirm that I don't like to be involved in intense arguments as I feel very uncomfortable. I don't want any tension and stress into my life so I am always trying to avoid causing any of them to the people that surrounds me. Even though that other people may not treat you as you treat them, I believe that eventually the universe will take control of the situation for you. Serenity (/sɪˈrɛnɪti/) 1. the state of being calm, peaceful, and untroubled. I can describe serenity as the extraordinary feeling of peace and calm and I can totally experience it while I am close to nature, such as enjoying a beautiful sunset close to sea. While at state of peace, I can feel more abudant than even and appreciate all the goods that I have. Serenity though, is not the absence of conflicts but the ability to cope with it and not letting it disturb you. One quote that I love is "Serenity comes when you trade expectations for acceptance". Flow (/fləʊ/) 1. (of a liquid, gas, or electricity) move steadily and continuously in a current or stream. "from here the river flows north" 2. the action or fact of moving along in a steady, continuous stream. Flow yoga is the general term given to any style of yoga asana in which the practitioner moves dynamically from one posture immediately into another, following the breath. This continuous flow of movement and breath generates a meditative state, encouraging practitioners to let go of thought and focus on experience of the present moment. In flow yoga, each movement into or out of a posture is timed with an inhalation or an exhalation in a choreographed sequence. I stopped going with the flow once I realized that you have to embrace the unique characteristics of yours, to stand from the crowd. On the other hand, I love to grow with the flow, meaning to just take things as they come, with a sense of acceptance, ease, calmness and perhaps complacency. I believe that everything happens for a reason, so I am riding the waves of life to whatever destination they lead me.
