Happy Family

From the I Ching by Brian Browne Walker:

A healthy family, a healthy country, a healthy world – all grow from a single superior person.

This is the proper foundation of human communities.  All clans must have a superior person at the center if they are to prosper and succeed.  Therefore, in order to improve our family, company, nation or world community, we must begin by improving ourselves.

If you will observe healthy families you will always see present in them three qualities: love, faithfulness and correctness.  When we truly love others, we are naturally kind, gentle and patient with them.  When we are faithful to others, we place proper principles and conduct above temporary influences like anger, desire or greed.  And when we practice correctness, we spiritually nourish ourselves and all those around us.  When all three qualities are cultivated, a healthy clan springs naturally into being.

The difference between paying lip service to these ideals and practicing them is profound.  If you advocate high ideals and actions to others but do not embody them yourself, your influence will disintegrate for lack of a proper foundation.  Therefore, you must first instill them in yourself.

Concentrate not upon influencing others or external events but upon strengthening your inner devotion to proper principles.  When modesty, acceptance, equanimity and gentleness become deeply ingrained in your character, they will flow steadily outward from you.  Soon you will find yourself enmeshed in a web of healthy relationships, and in this there is great good fortune.

We are here to actualize our infinite, divine potential.  We are blessed and as difficult as life can be, we have the freedom of choice on what we say and do.  We have the choice to respond rather than react.  We have the choice to give love or fear.  We are not mere humans, we are Spiritual Beings capable of extraordinary creativity.

Throughout history there are amazing people and masters who have demonstrated the highest values and proper principles in their lives.  Gandhi, in the face of horrible attacks, control and manipulation by others, stood his ground for non-violence and resistance without using the same hurtful and destructive behaviors of his oppressors. 

Regardless of the situation, there is always a way to share your truth without hurting others and by following proper principles.  It is the way of mastery, a sign that you have transcended the inferior patterns of behavior and are following a higher path.  This is possible for each and every individual on our planet.  It requires total commitment and total focus.

Our world is facing its greatest challenge in its history.  The serious problems in our environment, health, economies, governments and families all stem from our individual behavior.  The way to improve the world is to improve yourself.

“If it’s to be, it’s up to me.”

Find your path to freedom and fulfillment with kindness, love and compassion – even when your very life is attacked or threatened.  You make a choice every moment for love or fear.

Choose wisely…..the state of your world depends on you!

blessings,
