Knowing others in intelligence. Knowing yourself is true wisdom. – Chapter 22 ,Tao Te Ching
Tao cannot be defined as it is the process, principle,how and what of life. It teaches us the simplicity, patience and passion of our day to day lives. This definition is not a definition but it is what I understand so far from The Book of the Way.
Tao is a philosophy that is so simple to understand, yet it is so complex because simplicity is not many way of living. Our hectic day to day lives can have many puzzled with this word and stop and look at those who practice it with a complete lost of words. I for one was caught off guard as I read and understand, it is so simple yet it is very hard to understand.
The teaches of Tao is our day to day life and how we perceive each passing moment. It is a way of life that many practice find peace, harmony and love with each moment of their awakening life. Many of us practice Tao and may not even realize as it is a practice that can be planted and change our conscious and subconscious mind and way of reacting.
Tao is a beautiful and magnificent way of living and should be practiced by all to help with our journey of our lives. Tao can be practiced by meditating and centering yourself, being still and learning to be fully aware of one surroundings.
Tao teaches us about Karma and how each action is going to have a reaction. It teaches us that each seed we plant is going to reap and we have to accept what we sow. Every moment is a blessing and we must be awake when we are receiving divine messages.
Teo teaches that life happens and events must happen in order for this world to multiply. Life must be unfolded and there is always a process in someone life in order to manifest what blessings is in store for someone.
God is beyond comprehension and no one can truly understand the God above. Good and evil is never God will, it is our perception that leads us down this way. Our decisions and actions can lead us down a evil path or a good path in this life. At times evil and good goes hand in hand as there is always going to be evil and good that will unfold in our lives.
Nature Law is God Law as the Universe and God is actually one. God doesn’t need to punish us, we punish ourselves. This is stated is chapter 50 and I was surprised with this saying, as it is so very true, we punish ourselves at times without even realizing.
All is one and everything unites so we must learn to step aside and take in each moment in our lives. Chapter one has a line that goes this way mystery of mysteries. Door to all wonder. This explains that life is a mystery and each passing moment is a door to wonder. So, we must take each moment with simplicity, passion and not so seriously.
Chapter 16 gives guidance on Taoism especially if you are new to this. This book is brilliant and is a very simple read for all. It lays out point by point with explanations for all.
This book is a self help book that can be practiced in someone day to day awakening life and helps you question every step you take.
I understand this is a hard book to get a copy of but if you do, take a read or listen to the audio. It is one of the spiritual books I will have to read or listen a few more times again. As this book is one of the many books that opens your awareness to life, creation and the Universe.
Tao is something I practice unintentionally on a day to day but now as I have finished completed reading more on this. I am definitely going to be putting more practice into my self awareness and meditation practices.
What you think, you can manifest towards your life. Thoughts and words go hand in hand and can bring forth your reality. They say what you say and believe is what brings forth in your day to day life. That is why you have to be so careful what you say inwardly and outwardly.
Young children thinking can be affected from a very young age. Which can have an effect on their lives with the way they see things from a young age.
There is so much violence happening around the globe and children and teenagers are involved, and many are asking themselves why. Well, the answer lies in what we let our little ones view and take in from young. What is being put in their subconscious mind from an early age?
I can tell you a lot of cartoons and movies have a lot of violence and graphical images, that are being put in a young one mind from the age of 3. Many are giving there kids video games and having them unsupervised with their internet and tv time. Some children are even more tech-savvy than their own parents which are even scarier.
Whatever they are being shown on their devices they are putting into their subconscious minds. That, unfortunately, leaves an effect on them for a lifetime.
When positive alignment is placed around someone, to view or put in their minds. They will transform their thinking to positive thoughts only and bring forth positive thinking, words, and actions. Our subconscious mind is where our deepest thoughts lie and some thoughts go way back. This leads to our conscious mind and it eventually brings forth in our day to day lives.
There is a quote from Jesus Christ which states ask and it will be given, seek and you will find, knock and the door will be opened to you.
Our thoughts go the same way with our actions, when we think of our lives and envision our future we must think positive. This is because we are asking the Universe for assistance, seek with all your mind and heart. When you are seeking for an outcome you are searching for results and when you bring positive alignment to it, you already envision a healthy outcome.
Knock and the door will be opened, always keep your thoughts on the positive side of a request or situation. This is because you have asked the Universe for assistance and it will help you, once you believe with all your heart and mind.
Your mind is a powerful tool and you need to find ways to keep it on a positive aspect. Every day find 5 positive affirmations and say it daily, this can help when negativity creeps in and it always does. You will see the difference in situations when it doesn’t go your way.
Always choose different thoughts and your actions will fall in line.
There is another saying that I have heard once or twice before by many motivational speakers. Fake it until you make it. This switches your brain to have you thinking, you have already reached your goal. The Universe will fall in align and help you align your thoughts to your belief with time.
Expect a positive outcome and it will come. Expect luck and it will come. What we determine, is what comes forth in our lives.
Take 5 minutes a day to visualize your success, breath deeply when you are doing this meditation. Close your eyes and focus on the goal being acquired. This will help when you become stressed or when negativity begins to creep inside.
Try to remember positive moments when you acquired your goal. This will help with getting the feel, taste and smell you had at the time. Use this feeling when envisioning your future goals and see how it affects your thoughts when under high pressure.
When you envision the success, it will be brought forth in your day to day life. Tell the Universe exactly what you want and leave it all in the higher force hands to deal with, you have already started your process or done your part. When you let go and not continually dwelling on it, you are putting out that you are expecting this to come forth in your favor.
Happiness is a state of mind, so always be happy. Happiness is no means to an end of problems. It is something that you mindfully let happen to you.
Winners are always happy even when their world can be tumbling down. Nothing in life is permanent and we can always change circumstances but it always begins with your thoughts, towards everything.
Never let outside influences affect you, and how you see yourself. You can control circumstances and make them into opportunities and the Universe will bless you.
Failure is never a failure, it’s another chance and a new beginning of another book or chapter.
Most importantly, always practice living in the present. You can envision the future, but you must always make happiness a habit.
Planning is an unnatural process; it is much more fun to do something. The nicest thing about not planning is that failure comes as a complete surprise, rather than being preceded by a period of worry and depression. –John Harvey-Jones
Surprise, surprise, surprise. This is what life is saying to me now. The feeling of things getting out of control and out of reach is overwhelming. Positive mind, positive mind, I keep saying this to myself to center my mind so it can stop thinking even for just a while.
Bong then Bang, one after the next, life keeps throwing all these curve balls at me and quite out of control with them. How am I suppose to manager all this load by myself?
Here take this, maybe you can do with a little excitement. I don’t think you have enough stress to keep you occupied. This is how I feel when life just won’t give me a break with everything because for a second everything was actually fine.
It’s winter time in most lands, where you are is too sunny let me help you with that one. Life decides to have my heart feeling ice cold as I honestly don’t know which way to turn. Here let me help you maybe you can bleed a bit by ensuring you can feel everyone pain and put yourself aside for a bit. Yes my caring nature is so wonderfully adored by all.
Take some more pain and lets top it all with a little retrogates. Yes, let me remember a time I had one of the hardest moments, by abruptly bringing up something. That seems all so familiar right.
Don’t worry I am not done yet because I know you are strong so just wait I have a lot more in store just for you.
Doesn’t it all sound so familiar, well to me it is. Life can be a roller coaster and it can seriously feel like its not on your side at times. At the end of the day,life happens and it suppose to, it only shows we are alive.
The Universe spins off from life, so when surprise, surprise events happens, let us stop and think for a while. Let us take a step back and ask ourselves what can we do now to fix this problem. If its not fixable move on.
The hardest lesson in life to learn is to keep a positive mind in all situation. It is not impossible, but it is possible to keep a calm steady mind threw it all.
When it all feels like it is tumbling down. Let us stop, breath, reflect and take a step back to center ourselves, then tackle our problems.
“The world is gonna judge you no matter what you do. Live your life the way you want, stop pleasing everyone. “
No matter how hard we try to please everyone, people are still going to judge us. It is something we cannot control in this life.
Many of us, including myself, struggle with this on a day to day basis. It hurts to know we are watched and judged because of many different reasons that we cannot even comprehend.
A lot of people cannot understand what is happening in someone life and they stop to judge based on what they see in front of them. It is human nature and something we all have to stop.
A lot of millennials are struggling with just summing up the word called life. We are in an era that is so different from our past generations that we either get ahead in life or stay stuck in a rut. This can be a challenge that many faces and it leads to mental health issues we cannot even face.
Many older generations would say we are too pampered or can’t take time to really dig into life but when in truth we are always judged and cannot face our reality at times. It is a hard one to swallow when so much is happening around us and time is passing by and we are stuck comparing our lives to one another and think we are a failure in our time.
Judging someone based on what you see in front of you can be a test of time and it has been happening for many generations. Unfortunately, ours is a different test with every single resource we have some would assume we have it all figured out. When in truth so many are testing it all we have lost our way with time.
Christian religion says do not judge and yet still our humanity is doing this each and every single day. If it is not happening in the workplace, religious organizations, peers, parents or a random stranger. We are stuck doing it to ourselves, comparing our lives to everyone else and making ourselves sick with regrets. Judging is causing many of us to hold back and yet we do not realize it does not matter because in the end we will be judged anyway.
So let us all take some time to not judge anyone when a thought comes to mind about someone and we have no idea what is happening around them. Just remember, let us not judge and maybe take a second to stop and ask if they are ok because the person can be having a hard time or trying to deal with this thing called life.
Every day each of us is faced with something, and it is all a part of life. But at times we have to really stop and look at our lives and not around at other people lives. When we do this one, I believe this world can save a lot of lives who are struggling with mental awareness.
Anything is possible once you put your faith in God. He is always there to guide and protect you when you feel like no one is around. He is the one who lifts you up when you are down and he is the one who is always around.
God is the one who was always around from the start. He is creation, life and lives in everyone heart. God is creation and he is the one who is Universal.
He lives in all of us and when we die, he leaves with us. He created us and we are one because of his love for us. Many question the existence of God but doesn’t realize God is all around. Each and every moment of our lives is for God.
Anything is possible for him, if you believe in his love, Universal Love. Positive mindset is not always easy and that is the time we have to put all our focus and eyes on something more. Always look at the bigger picture when in doubt and see the difference in the outcome.
God gave us a mind and our mind helps us manifest what we want in our lives. Our thoughts can be helpful or destructive depending on how we preserve our direction in our lives. Our mind is designed to help us foster and cultivate what we bring forth in our lives and assist in the impossible to the possible.
Our thoughts become our actions and this is why when we keep our mind focus on the bigger picture at difficult times, this can help us see a clearer vision of our lives. The Universe, our conscious and subconscious mind are all linked together and helps us cultivate the impossible to the possible,in our day to day lives.
There is a saying, if your path is more difficult, it is because of your higher calling in life. This a powerful, yet a effective statement. Many of the great people who have passed on in our time, did not have easy paths.
You always know when you have to reach greater goals in life. When you get that nudge, spiritual awakening or a deep feeling for more from life. At times this may not be an easy awakening and many ignore what is happening to them.
A lot of us when we have this nudge, we end up talking ourselves out of situations because of fear. Fear of change, fear of failure or just fear. The universe can have a higher purpose for us and a lot of times this can be scary.
We have to stop with fear and not let it take over our lives and passion. The fear of the unknown can be holding us back and the Universe has a bigger plan for you.
Always believe deep in your soul, that the universe is always on your side.
Once you have a higher calling this can be to help transform the world. To help others grow or be a humanitarian. You have to be strong and courageous to reach that calling, you never know whose life you are impacting.
Our world is in a dying need for more people who want to push for the betterment of this world. We are in such urgent need that many people are suffering and many have just lost hope, on the whole in many areas in the world. Devastation is around, many are begging for love and many are feeling unwanted.
So many are trying to get rich fast that we forgot to be our brother or sister keeper. We have become so caught up in our day to day lives, we do not even have time to care.
For those who are helping and doing the work, my heart goes out to you because I know it is no easy job. We honestly need more people to give of themselves more and be courageous enough to show their passion and love to others in this world.
Meditate day and night so you can be made purposeful decisions in life and be wise with your actions. When you have a higher calling in life, sometimes it starts with just being wise enough to say yes to the universe.
Be a wise man or woman, make wise decisions and you will be prosperous and successful. Sometimes you have to lose everything to get that extra push to reach your higher calling in this life.
When you have a higher calling you have to be strong and courageous and pursue your true destiny.
Do not be afraid and know the universe is by your side. When you have that calling to persuade your passion or do more in life, do not be afraid because that deep feeling may never go away. Unless you try.
