From the I Ching by Brian Browne Walker:
If you persevere a great success is at hand.
Imagine a blade of grass pushing against an obstacle as it sprouts out of the earth. This is a sign that beyond the difficulties and pressures that surround you, a success lies waiting. In order to bring it fully into the light, you must be patient and persevere in nonaction.
No matter how fervently you desire to resolve a situation, to intervene impatiently now will only hinder the progress of good fortune. Accept and bear with the discomfort of chaos without attempting to push it away. Allowing it to clear of its own accord, in its own time, is the only way of insuring a subsequent blossoming of success.
Hold to proper principles. In your actions, seek and respect the counsel of the Sage. Allow those whose hearts are true to assist you wherever possible; be tolerant of all others. In this way the blessing that now lies hidden will come into the open.
There is great wisdom here. See where this metaphor fits in your life. When starting something new, whether a personal relationship, a new health or exercise program, a project or business, the beginning stages are usually the most difficult. During these times perseverance, patience and tolerance are very important. Wait for the universe to make the first move and show you a sign that the time is right for you to take action.
Regardless of the challenges you are facing success is still possible. Follow your heart and intuition and take it one step at a time. A to B, B to C, C to D, etc. Don’t try to go from A to Z and figure out future details before their time. Stay focused in the present and look for the next step. Stay true to proper principles and correct attitude and conduct.
It is the journey, the lessons and what you become that is most important.
Difficulty in the beginning can lead to great success in the end.

You are given two beautiful eyes to see.
But your heart and intuition see even more clearly.
When you have a strong desire or outcome you want, it can color your perceptions.
It actually can change what you are looking at so that it appears the way you want it to.
Sometimes you want something so badly that you bend the universe toward your point of view.
Reality can be a very subjective experience.
There is a distinction between wanting to see the truth – seeing things the way they truly are and your perceptions. One is objective and the other is subjective. When you are present and without an agenda, it is easier to observe and see clearly.
When you have a strongly desired outcome, it is more challenging as you are seeing through a biased filter and your thoughts and feelings color your reality.
Use your heart and intuition to see more clearly.
It has been said that prayer is you talking to God and intuition is God or the universe talking to you,
Either way it is a beautiful communication.
So take a good look and use your intuition.
Trust yourself and clearly observe what is happening around you and you will make better choices.
Make sure that the people you keep close to you are honest and sincere in their desire for your best.
Make sure that you give to others what you want to receive…..because what you give out comes back.
Every moment is precious and can be used to encourage and uplift yourself and others.
Use your time and energy optimally and wisely.
In this way, when you take a good look, you will love what you see!

From my wonderful teacher, Roy Eugene Davis – www.csa-davis.org:
Your highest spiritual good prevails when you are always conscious of your true nature as an immortal, spiritual being in relationship with the Infinite. At the innermost level of your being you are whole, pure, serene and knowledgeable. Allow your innate qualities and capacities to emerge and be fully actualized.
Your highest mental good prevails when you think rationally, your intellectual powers are fully developed and all life-enhancing desires and intentions produce or attract ideal events and circumstances.
Your highest emotional good prevails when you can view thoughts, memories and objective conditions with dispassionate objectivity.
Your highest physical good prevails when you are radiantly healthy and effectively functional.
Your highest circumstantial good prevails when environmental conditions are ideal and abundant material resources that enable you to be comfortable, secure and easily accomplish purposes of value are always readily available.
Your highest good prevails in relationships when they are wholesome, harmonious and mutually supportive. Merely wanting or hoping to have your highest good does not produce positive results. To have it, claim it as your own and do what is necessary to be able to have it. You can do it.
“Yes, I know what is for my highest good, I prepare myself to have it and I thankfully claim it as my own.”

Sometimes in life you find yourself in interesting and challenging situations.
You may ask yourself, how did I get here?
Sometimes you are not sure how to move forward from your present situation.
It is wise to tune into your intuition and focus on the present moment.
Observe what is around you and feel your feelings and just accept.
Let go of any judgments or thoughts and ask for clarity and divine guidance.
Sometimes, even with the best of intentions you can make bad or even dangerous choices.
Take responsibility for yourself, but do not blame or judge yourself or others.
There are lessons to be learned in every situation.
Even if you find yourself alone on a cliff.
The greater the challenge, the greater the learning opportunity.
The bigger the risk, the bigger the potential reward.
You learn more from your mistakes or failures than from the wins in your life.
But if you truly learn from these situations, are they really mistakes or failures?
Your highest good and truest possibilities can never be taken from you.
There is always an opportunity for success in every moment.
Again, maintaining a clear perspective and an open mind and attitude is critical.
Your intuition is the universe talking to you, so it is wise to listen.
Out of bad situations come major successes.
It is always darkest just before the dawn.
In the end, the light always obliterates the darkness.
Good always prevails.
Maintain a positive and optimistic attitude.
Know that your good is looking for you as much or more than you are looking for your good.
