A trusted friend quoted the Tao Te Ching last night while sharing a bit of advice. Though, I did not fully grasp his words at the time, I took down the verse from the Tao and meditated on it this morning. What he shared was this from Verse 66:
All streams flow to the sea because it lies below them. Humility gives it its power. If you want to govern the people, you must place yourself below them. If you want to lead the people, you must learn to follow them.
While looking at the powerful words above, I wondered how this verse pertained to my question, which was: “Should I do what I have considered litigious in the past, or should I lie low and wait longer in this particular situation?”
His advice meant that if I stayed in a low position, the waters of intelligence, wisdom, prosperity, and enlightenment would always rush toward me, instead of away. These wise words became a lovely thought and one worth deliberating in my meditation this morning.
In life there are many chances to pounce on the next opportunity, as if it will go away before you can think about it fully. Have you ever truly lost something, when you laid low and waited for the river to flow to you?
I look back at my life and see there are no instances of this happening. Waiting on the Lord is one of the greatest spiritual laws of the universe in both the Christian and Jewish scriptures, as well.
When we consider that sowing seeds in the rich earth requires time for them to sprout, grow, become stronger, and bear fruit, we understand that time is of the essence. Waiting, though it is hard sometimes, is the perfect place to be, because it is a place of observance. Being in your observer mind is always the key to change and acquiring wisdom from Spirit.
Once we download any information during meditation into our mind, then we use our cognitive tools of human deduction and induction to formulate, calculate, and manifest plans for change. But, this cannot happen without a blueprint from Spirit.
So, today’s practice is about waiting on the Lord. Stand back from whatever it is that you struggle with, need, or want. Lie low, as the Tao says, and wait for the waters of the rivers to flow TO you!
This year, if you desire to commit to a change for a New Year’s Resolution, do it with your MIND first. Remember, as in the title of my new book coming out just in time to help you with this (in January)… lol… that all change happens in your mind, first. You must change your Old Story, to make a consistent and long lasting change in Your Life.
