From The I Ching – Book of Changes, by Brian Browne Walker:
Give proper nourishment to yourself and others.
Nourishment of your body and spirit is important and merits your conscientious attention.
The I Ching teaches that if you wish to guage someone’s character, you should notice what he nourishes in himself and in others. Those who cultivate inferior behaviors and relationships are inferior people; those who cultivate superior qualities in themselves and others are superior people. This is a test you should apply to yourself and others.
What you put into your body is obviously important. Because it determines your fundamental physical well-being, it is wise to be moderate and thoughtful about the food you eat. What you put into your mind is even more significant and regulating it is a more subtle art.
1) You should not feed your mind on desire as a host of inferior influences come into play.
A self-reinforcing cycle of negativity is created so it is wise to hold yourself free of desire.
2) Begin and continue a regular practice of meditation.
Sitting quietly with your eyes closed for even as little as ten or fifteen minutes a day begins to “clear the waste”out of your heart and mind, making room for the nourishment of peace and wisdom to enter in. To sit in meditation is to tune your ear to the voice of The Sage and it is the most powerful way of gaining his assistance.
3) Observe tranquility in speech, thoughts and actions.
By cultivating calm and equanimity in all that you say, think and do, you nourish your superior self and that of those around you.
One who follows these three counsels now will meet with good fortune.
“He who has health has hope and he who has hope has everything.”

What would happen if you are so present and engaged in your life that your creativity and natural brilliance shine through? What would you feel like? What results would you create? What impact and difference would you make in the world?
It’s easy to complain about how tough life is, but the cost is you waste precious time and energy focusing on the negative and the problems. Many people waste most of their life is this trap. Shift your focus and attention to the opportunities and the solutions that are possible. What you focus on is what you create and attract.
My friends, Ariel and Shya Kane are catalysts for “Instantaneous Transformation.” That’s what happens around them, people transform and become more of themselves, more present and more brilliant. People stop complaining and resisting their life and start winning and succeeding.
Here is some of their wisdom:
1) Anything you resist, persists, grows stronger and dominates your life.
It takes you away from the moment and your success.
2) You can only be doing one thing in any given moment of your life.
Multitasking studies actually show that people are less effective when multitasking.
Become a uni-tasker!
3) Anything you allow to be exactly as it is completes itself.
Be an observer, like an anthropologist and let it be – don’t judge.
A good way to access the present moment is by listening. True listening is being engaged and paying attention when someone is speaking to you. Listen to their words, their tone, their body language and all of the subtle nuances of their communication. Feel what you are feeling as they speak.
By being fully engaged and present in your life, health, work and relationships you create excellence naturally. When you are present and you tap into your full potential, your brilliance shows up. Remember to pay attention to the little things, the details and nuances in life because that’s where the magic happens.

“The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
Vision, compassion, honor, justice and freedom. These are important qualities and values that create transformation and empowerment. Today’s challenges give you the opportunity to tap into these qualities. Gandhi transformed the world and you can too!
We all could use more compassion and truth. You have the freedom of choice to not accept anything less that total truth and your divine plan. Others may try to program or convince you about what you should do. But in the end, the choice is always yours!
Deep down inside your heart and intuition, you know the truth. You know what is right and what is wrong. You know when people are following proper principles and you know when they are not. You also know when you are.
Even in challenging times, anything is possible. You can still create whatever you want as long as it does not violate the rights of others. You know when something has merit and nothing can stop a good idea when its time has come. You can make your dream a reality even in this new economy and under any circumstances. It takes belief and action.
This is a time when vision and greatness are needed. People need hope and inspiration more than ever to achieve their dreams and make it happen. The vision and greatness of the founding principles of The United States of America are still alive and well. Like any dream or truth, it needs to be acknowledged, shared, nurtured and protected.
Make this the time in your life to renew your commitment to excellence and proper principles. Take the time to make sure that you are following your truth and divine path.
“Those who know the truth, learn to love it.
Those who love the truth, learn to live it.”
Make this your moment of truth. Make this your stand for freedom. Live the life you have imagined! You can make a difference, for yourself, your family and for others.
