Stop chasing your dreams. Allow them to come to you in pefect order with unquestioned timing. Slow down your frantic pace and practice being hollow like the cave and open to all possibilities like the uncarved wood.
Make stillness a regular part of your daily practice. Imagine all that you’d like to experience in life and then let go. Trust the Tao to work in Divine perfection, as it does with everything on the planet.
You don’t really need to rush or force anything. Be an observer and receiver rather than the pushy director of your life. It is through this unhurried unfolding that you master your existance in the way of the Tao.
Give up worrying and start trusting. What is yours will come to you when you aren’t trying to push the river. You’ve probably been encouraged to actively direct or go after your desires all of your life…now it’s time to trust in the eternal wisdom that flows through you.
Activity for the day: Take ten minues to sit quietly while contemplating all that you have and all that is flowing into your life…
– By Dr. Wayne W. Dyer in Change Your Thoughts- Change Your Life: Living the Wisdom of the Tao
Upon waking, let the words Thank you flow from your lips, for this will remind you to begin your day with gratitude and compassion. Make it a practice to begin each day by thinking first of someone else and then making a decision to actively do something, anything, that will bring a smile to his or her face.
When you become conscious of wanting to do something kind for another human being, you move into a higher way of being. It takes your thoughts off yourself and What’s in it for me? and puts them on How may I serve? which is precisely how the universal mind we call the Tao or God is always operating. When you’re aligned with a compassionate outlook, your entire day will reflect that kind of awareness.
Some suggestions for getting you started: email a note of appreciation, say a kind word, apologize to an individual you’ve needed to make amends with, pick a few wildflowers and hand them to someone, give away some personal items such as books or jewelry, or send a smile toward someone that might brighten his or her moment…
