Powerful and Wise Living Begins Here

As we have moved into a dynamic energy with the Lion’s Gate portal on 8/8/21, what happens next? Some may say, recognize you are a powerful creator and now manifest your creation. Others may also say, hang on because another retrograde will begin soon and there will be much disruption.

So how do you live in these powerful and disruptive days? Determine to be a master, be the creator of both your daily experience and your life. If that seems daunting, then begin here: simplicity, ease, release, play, lower your expectations, laugh, let go. These are attributes of a child. Possibly you have heard, don’t be so childish. I chuckle at that thought, why?  Because that is the way to live soberly and thus restrictively in your life. Why not be as a child? Be carefree, not careless. Be playful, not so serious all the time. Be joyful in your creation and when it falls apart, go on the next thing.

The beginning of powerful and wise living is not found in control, but in undisturbable simplicity. Who exhibits this more than a child? The key to power is not strength, but meekness. Meekness can be understood by this concept: power under control. So here is the truth of the matter, be as a child with the knowing you are a powerful creator. Recognize that in doing nothing, you can do all things. This thought is a mastery position, because it contains all the axioms necessary for a peaceful and contented life. Isn’t that the ultimate goal?

Here are some wisdom words from the Tao to encourage you and help establish the development of your meekness. Be playful and at the same time seek wisdom daily, for powerful living exists here.

Find the anchor of the universe within yourself!

From the Tao, Lesson 37

The subtle essence of the universe is always unoccupied, yet it leaves nothing undone.

If the people of the world were wise enough to plant the root of their lives deep within the Subtle Origin, then the worldly affairs of life would coherently follow their own natural course, and harmony would abound of its own accord.

When confusion takes place in one’s surroundings, it can be dissolved with the power of undisturbable Simplicity.

When life is ruled by undisturbable Simplicity, desire and passion naturally fall away and reveal people’s true, original nature.

Then the peaceful order of the universe prevails and unity manifests again of its own accord.
