Honor this moment as sacred.
“I now accept and appreciate the abundant life the Universe offers me.”
The Tao Te Ching teaches us to live in harmony with the world of 10,000 things. Willingness and appreciation allow us enter this realm with an open heart. Humility changes the way that we relate to the world and to one another. In the 39th verse (written 2500 years ago), Lao-tzu says, in part:
“When man interferes with the Tao,
the sky becomes filthy,
the earth becomes depleted,
the equilibrium crumbles,
creatures become extinct.
Therefore, nobility is rooted in humility;
loftiness is based on lowliness.
This is why noble people refer to themselves
as alone, lacking, and unworthy…
…Playing one’s part
in accordance with the universe
is true humility.”
We must make our decisions based upon the idea that we are all interconnected. The concepts of daily gratitude and Oneness cultivate a loving relationship with the planet and inspires this heart-based connection to inform your actions.
“If you put your heart against the earth with me, in serving every creature,
our Beloved will enter you from our sacred realm and we will be,
we will be so happy.”
Today my intention is to love without judgment, act without expectation and give the best of myself.
