"The world is a sacred vessel" says Lao Tze in the Tao te Ching.
It is a vessel that pours out to us neither more nor less than the consciousness that we pour in. Everything we see in the world is an effect; its cause lies in consciousness. If you desire to live beautifully, creatively, prosperously, or abundantly then you must make certain that the ideals you are living are in accord with those qualities. The Universe will always reward you according to your inner alignment. If your present station in life isn't exactly where you desire to be then you may want to consider a new mental diet. Your freedom lies in your ability to choose what you will believe or not believe in. In Religious Science we say, "Right action follows right intention (belief)." While in truth there is no wrong intention or belief, when our desires and beliefs are aligned, we're more right with ourselves than when they are in contradiction. If you desperately want to live beautifully you cannot walk around finding fault with the world. You must cultivate a consciousness that will produce only beauty. When you walk this life in a state of contradiction; when your actions don't match your thoughts - your good will seem to fall from your hands at every turn.
Now that we have that straight - GO. Get out there and show them who's boss!
Right behind ya,
Blessing:There is One Infinite whole perfect presence, and its consciousness is love.
Its consciousness is wholeness. Its consciousness is joy. And its consciousness
is my consciousness also. I joyously awaken to my deep connection with the
spirit and substance of Life, giving thanks with every breath that all that I need
is right where I am, be it enhanced creativity, deepened understanding, a heart
free to love and be loved, or the substance I need to live and live well.
I am a powerful vehicle through which Spirit expresses its perfection
and joy, and I live in perfect grace, total delight, and absolute ease.
And so it is.
