What do you think might become possible if, “You” were the CAUSE of “Your” life? J
Do you think you would still have excuses, reasons and want to blame others for your life/situations? Would you need a god or higher power to pray to etc etc?
Come along and explore what might happen if we took RESPONSIBILITY for OUR lives and others did the same and what might be stopping us from wanting to do such things?
Express yourself completely, then keep quiet. Be like the forces of nature:
When it blows, there is only wind; when it rains, there is only rain; when the clouds pass, the sun shines through.
If you open yourself to the Tao, you are at one with the Tao and you can embody it completely.
If you open yourself to insight, you are at one with insight and you can use it completely.
If you open yourself to loss, you are at one with loss and you can accept it completely.
Open yourself to the Tao, then trust your natural responses; and everything will fall into place.
He who stands on tiptoe doesn't stand firm.
He who rushes ahead doesn't go far.
He who tries to shine dims his own light.
He who defines himself can't know who he really is.
He who has power over others can't empower himself.
He who clings to his work will create nothing that endures.
If you want to accord with the Tao, just do your job, then let go.
We will be reviewingour thoughts and ideas from last weeks verse and asking questions like –
1. What stops us from “expressing ourselves completely”? :(
2. Can we even EMPOWER ourselves?
And I’m sure alot more! :)

“Money back guarantee” – FULL REFUND, if you feel you have not learnt nor seen anything “New or Different” i.e. something you think you could have easily found at any other meeting, on the internet or in any old book!!:)
I STRONGLY recommend the “10 meetings deal”, not just because I want you to come back and it’s the best deal, but because this “different level of thinking” does not seem “easy” for most minds to grasp. At best, I feel you “may” get some sort of “intellectual appreciation” of it, from the first meeting. Hence I recommend at least 10 sessions to get a better “intellectual appreciation and deeper understanding” of it and maybe even start to get a “real experience” of it, in your life/world! I think anything less, would be “cheating” yourself and maybe leave you with a “very limited” and possibly “false” impression of what is available, why and how etc! :(
I look forward to seeing you and helping you “Discover your Life’s Vision/Game of Life”! :)
PS Here are the 3 book references, I will be using –
1. “Tao de Ching” by Stephen Mitchell. (Also seems to come in a very handy pocket size, for quick inspirational reference!)
2. “Change your thoughts – change your life” (living the wisdom of the Tao) by Dr Wayne Dyer.
3. “A Thousand Names for Joy: Living in Harmony with the Way Things Are” by Byron Katie
If you have any other questions on the “Tao de Ching” or have your own interpretations, books, CDs, videos etc etc, please feel free to bring them along! :)
