Have a Magnificent Day!

The Caldron

posted by The MEGA Coach

From The I Ching or Book of Changes:

You serve as an example to others by sacrificing your ego
and accepting the guidance of the Higher Power
.

We all must have the proper nourishment and guidance in order to fully succeed.  While the culture around us often encourages us to “take charge” and make aggressive demands on life, the I Ching offers far wiser counsel.  Here we are encouraged to give up the incessant demands of our ego – to deepen our humility and acceptance and to listen carefully to the instructions of the Sage.

The image of the caldron concerns your inner thoughts: whatever you hold in the “caldron” of your mind is your offering to the Higher Power.  The quality of assistance you can receive from the universe is governed by the quality of your offering.  If you constantly indulge in the concerns of the ego – fear, desires, strategies to control, harshness toward others – you repel the Higher Power and block your own nourishment.  If, on the other hand, you consciously let go of your resistance to life and hold quiet and correct thoughts, you become receptive to the Creative and your continual nourishment is assured.

The wisest thing that you can do now is to still you ego and conscientiously enter into a conversation with the Sage.  To influence other, or to achieve a proper goal, follow the same path.  By cultivating humility and acceptance, purifying your inner thoughts and concentrating on that which is good and innocent and true, you summon the power of the Creative and meet with good fortune in the outer world.

In other words, what we give out comes back…. what goes around comes around.
What we focus our attention (energy) on….our thoughts, feelings, words and actions creates the quality of our lives.  We attract similar energy to us.

Find your divine path that expresses your natural essence.
What you are is a divine Spiritual Being having a human experience on earth.

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,

Gradual Development

posted by The MEGA Coach

From The I Ching or Book of Changes:

Those who persevere make continuous progress.

Picture a tree growing high on a mountaintop.  If this tree grows too fast, without first properly rooting itself, it becomes susceptible to being torn up and destroyed by the winds.  If, however, it establishes a proper foundation and is content to grow gradually, it will enjoy a long life and a lofty view.

Human beings are no different.  While we often desire rapid progress -we want to change someone’s mind today, obtain an apology now, achieve all our goals immediately – sooner or later we must come to understand that the only lasting progress is gradual progress.  Accept this fact and base your thoughts, attitudes and actions upon it.

When we have allowed ourselves to be pulled off balance by another or by some event, the ego tempts us to believe that we can influence the situation through forceful behavior.  This is incorrect; the actions of the ego inevitably complicate our difficulties.  The greatest influence possible always comes through patient and steady refinement of one’s inner self.  If you will devote yourself to the path of the Sage, with every step along that path you will be strengthened, and progress will come automatically.  It will be gradual, but it will last.

Be patient, modest and accepting now.  Life often demands that we wait longer than we might like for some change, and the only true comfort available during these times is the knowledge that we are steadfastly developing ourselves into superior people.  In time, every honor comes to those who are persevering and correct.

May these words of wisdom comfort and nurture you with health and prosperity.

There Is A Divine Plan For My Life

posted by The MEGA Coach

There is a special purpose for your life.
There is something you are here to do that no one else can do.

You are unique, a child of God with a special role to play.
Discover what you are and what your special role is.

This requires a sincere and humble approach to life.
This requires courage and clarity and discernment to learn.

Listening to your still, small voice within, your intuition is a powerful truth.
It will guide you on your path.

Ask for guidance and seek to discover and manifest your divine plan of your life,
under grace and in perfect ways.  It is the most exciting journey possible.

 From The Game of Life by Florence Scovel Shinn:
‘There is nothing too great of accomplishment for the man who knows the power of his word and who follows his intuitive leads.  By the word he starts in action unseen forces and can rebuild his body or remold his affairs.

Intuition is a spiritual faculty and does not explain, but simply points the way.

It is so much easier for the average person, to have fear than faith; so faith is an effort of the will.

There is for each person, Perfect Self-Expression.  There is a place for each person to fill that no one else can fill, something which a person is to do, which no one else can do; it is their destiny!

So a person’s highest demand is for the Divine Design or Divine Plan of their life.’

Infinite Spirit, open the way for the Divine Design of my life to manifest; let the genius within me now be released; let me see clearly the perfect plan.”

The perfect plan includes Health, Wealth, Love & Perfect Self-Expression.

Prosperously Yours,
:) Lee
