Grace

posted by The MEGA Coach

From The I Ching or Book of Changes:

Inside, the strength of simplicity and self-knowledge.
Outside, the beauty of acceptance and gentleness
.

Cultivate a quality of grace in your relationships and in your general way of being.  In this way you gain a power greater than any other to open a way through obstructions in your dealings with others.  Good fortune is yours if you concentrate on bringing more grace to your thoughts and actions now.

It is human nature to want to use forceful ways to try to get what we want from others and from life.  Our egos encourage us to act aggressively, to speak boldly, to intimidate others, to “buffalo” our way through difficult situations.  This false power can be momentarily satisfying to our ego and temporary victories can be won in this way, but genuine power and lasting progress come from a different kind of strength altogether.

They come from inner strength, which is characterized by a steadfast devotion to the principles of humility, simplicity, equanimity and acceptance.  By gradually letting go of the vain, bullying energy of the ego and accepting the quiet guidance of the Higher Power, one acquires the substance that makes ongoing food fortune a possibility.

This is a time to relinquish self-important maneuvering.  Instead, return to stillness and contemplate the inherent wisdom of the principles of the Sage.  By practicing quiet strength within and gentle acceptance without, you acquire a grace that dissolves all barriers to progress.

May you experience grace and peace in all areas of your life.

Smiles,

    Grace secures our place in our
    relationship and walk with GOD.
    GOD knows it to be a necessity;
    so He provides it daily and
    freely. You are a testament
    to the saving grace of GOD and
    the truth of His salvation.
    It is good to be reminded of
    our need to embrace HIS grace.
    May you grow in respect to HIS
    grace unto the measure of its
    fullness, which is in Christ !!
