Just sharing this here in these turbulent times. There are some very peaceful, beautiful thoughts and ideas in this post. It raised my vibrational frequency just reading it.

I am just as guilty here. Just don't have the inclination to post anything. But just got something from another friend who said what the OP wrote about gathering less but realising more really struck a chord with her! She sent me something as follows :




"""""""Lesson 3 – Know less and less

“In the pursuit of learning, every day something is acquired. In the pursuit of Tao, every day something is dropped.” – Lao Tse (Chapter 48, Lao Te Ching)
We really don’t want you to participate in these lessons and go away stuffed with a whole set of principles, learnings, and knowledge. What we want is something greater than that. We want you to let go. We want you to be dropping away concepts. This is a very different approach.
The idea of letting go is very strange to us, because our society teaches us to acquire. The more we have the more secure we will be.
“If you have the choice of the divine knowing or the divine unknowing, take the divine unknowing. As soon as you know, you have to take responsibility for all the actions. As soon as you don’t know, you still are open to receive of the grace of that.” – John-Roger

Lesson 4 – Where are you going?

“It is not wise to rush about.” – Lao Tse (Chapter 55, Lao Te Ching)
“Is there any hurry to go anywhere? Where are you going that you are not all ready there? How can you be impatient when the important things are always present? It is not necessary to worry or pressure yourself. It all works out perfectly, contrary to anyone’s thought processes or how they feel about it.” – John-Roger
One of the keys of the Tao is accepting what is, as it is. The underlying premise of the Tao is that you already are complete and whole in your essence. It is not a process of getting anything, earning anything, or acquiring anything, it is a process of being present, letting go and allowing yourself to simply be.

Lesson 5 – Accept

“Do not be concerned with loss or gain.” – Lao Tse (Chapter 13, Lao Te Ching)
“Acceptance is not a mental, emotional, or physical position. It’s a state of being. There’s nothing you have to do with it, it’s just there.” – John-Roger
This idea of acceptance is very important. A lot of the Tao is in the beingness and it helps to make that practical, because it’s easy to say, “Oh, just be.” And you go, “Okay, sounds good, what do I do?” It’s having a very high intent and paying attention with a very high purpose, a focus, a higher level of awareness and acceptance.

Lesson 6 – Be Ordinary

“Not putting on a display, they shine forth. Not justifying themselves, they are distinguished. Not boasting, they receive recognition. Not bragging, they never falter. They do not quarrel, so no one quarrels with them.” – Lao Tse (Chapter 22, Lao Te Ching)
“Perfect your beingness by going slowly through the routine of your life until you have it mastered. Do the ordinary things that make up your life. Learn to do those things to the point of mastery. You’ll find great satisfaction in them. Conduct your life from a place of quiet, calm loving. Get it perfected so that the routine of your life does not distract you or disturb you and so you can maintain a state of loving in everything you do. Then you can expand the scope of your activity, moving your loving heart out to others in a natural, ordinary way. Then you are just present with people, loving them. Living your life in an ordinary way can be the most tremendous service to your fellow men.” – John-Roger

Lesson 7 – Non-Action


“The world is ruled by letting things take their course. It cannot be ruled by interfering.” – Lao Tse (Chapter 48, Lao Te Ching)
“There are many things in life you do not have to do. You do not have to seek love. You do not have to defend yourself. You do not have to be noticed. You do not have to go out and seek the madhouse world of success, fame, and fortune. You do not have to be what is called a “spiritual person”. You do not have to anxiously hope for anything. You do not have to be considered nice by others. You do not have to have security. Security lies in the inner awareness that there is no security. When you stop fighting for security and recognize that there is none, then there is no more concern about that.” – John-Roger

Lesson 8 – Action From Being

“A truly good man does nothing, yet leaves nothing undone. A foolish man is always doing, yet much remains to be done.” – Lao Tse (Chapter 38, Lao Te Ching)
“If we can just be, and we can let that being of who we are come forward, and we can let our voice and our mind just present themselves, this being will do away with all the doing that has been our compulsive and obsessive behavior. That being comes forward, and then it does the doing. And there’s no karma because the action is done from the state of being, not from the state of ego, or from right and wrong or from “I’m supposed to know” or anything else like that.” – John-Roger
The place that the action is coming from is the key. When we go out into the world, what kind of energy are we carrying with us? Are we going to be in our compulsiveness and our habit patterns, or are we going to be present in this energy of being?
Walt Whitman describes this attitude, this beingness that we can carry with us
beautifully:
“We walk silent among disputes and assertions, but reject not the disputers nor any thing that is asserted. We hear the bawling and din, we are reached at by divisions, jealousies, recriminations on every side. They close peremptorily upon us to surround us, my comrade, yet we walk unheld, free, the whole earth over.”
– Walt Whitman """"""""""

I disagree. If you don't sell yourself, no one will notice. No one else will do it for you. So you must do it yourself.

I have never ever received recognition by being quiet about it.

EDIT: And yes, I have tried. All of those efforts have largely gone ignored by being silent.

“If we can just be, and we can let that being of who we are come forward, and we can let our voice and our mind just present themselves, this being will do away with all the doing that has been our compulsive and obsessive behavior. That being comes forward, and then it does the doing. And there’s no karma because the action is done from the state of being, not from the state of ego, or from right and wrong or from “I’m supposed to know” or anything else like that.” – John-Roger
The place that the action is coming from is the key. When we go out into the world, what kind of energy are we carrying with us? Are we going to be in our compulsiveness and our habit patterns, or are we going to be present in this energy of being?
Walt Whitman describes this attitude, this beingness that we can carry with us
beautifully:
“We walk silent among disputes and assertions, but reject not the disputers nor any thing that is asserted. We hear the bawling and din, we are reached at by divisions, jealousies, recriminations on every side. They close peremptorily upon us to surround us, my comrade, yet we walk unheld, free, the whole earth over.”
– Walt Whitman """"""""""

Absolutely amazing post!!! Thank you for sharing this. Funny how we are sent messages that we need to hear, unintentionally. From messengers.

I've always believed that everything happens for a reason.

I have an Alex and Ani 'It Is What It Is' bracelet.

Just a couple of small examples for me.

LOVED this post. Very deep and powerful post. For me. : )

It spoke MANY more words than in the post itself.

Thank you sister!!!

Just sharing this here in these turbulent times. There are some very peaceful, beautiful thoughts and ideas in this post. It raised my vibrational frequency just reading it.

I am just as guilty here. Just don't have the inclination to post anything. But just got something from another friend who said what the OP wrote about gathering less but realising more really struck a chord with her! She sent me something as follows :




"""""""Lesson 3 – Know less and less

“In the pursuit of learning, every day something is acquired. In the pursuit of Tao, every day something is dropped.” – Lao Tse (Chapter 48, Lao Te Ching)
We really don’t want you to participate in these lessons and go away stuffed with a whole set of principles, learnings, and knowledge. What we want is something greater than that. We want you to let go. We want you to be dropping away concepts. This is a very different approach.
The idea of letting go is very strange to us, because our society teaches us to acquire. The more we have the more secure we will be.
“If you have the choice of the divine knowing or the divine unknowing, take the divine unknowing. As soon as you know, you have to take responsibility for all the actions. As soon as you don’t know, you still are open to receive of the grace of that.” – John-Roger

Lesson 4 – Where are you going?

“It is not wise to rush about.” – Lao Tse (Chapter 55, Lao Te Ching)
“Is there any hurry to go anywhere? Where are you going that you are not all ready there? How can you be impatient when the important things are always present? It is not necessary to worry or pressure yourself. It all works out perfectly, contrary to anyone’s thought processes or how they feel about it.” – John-Roger
One of the keys of the Tao is accepting what is, as it is. The underlying premise of the Tao is that you already are complete and whole in your essence. It is not a process of getting anything, earning anything, or acquiring anything, it is a process of being present, letting go and allowing yourself to simply be.

Lesson 5 – Accept

“Do not be concerned with loss or gain.” – Lao Tse (Chapter 13, Lao Te Ching)
“Acceptance is not a mental, emotional, or physical position. It’s a state of being. There’s nothing you have to do with it, it’s just there.” – John-Roger
This idea of acceptance is very important. A lot of the Tao is in the beingness and it helps to make that practical, because it’s easy to say, “Oh, just be.” And you go, “Okay, sounds good, what do I do?” It’s having a very high intent and paying attention with a very high purpose, a focus, a higher level of awareness and acceptance.
Audio (1:03)

Lesson 6 – Be Ordinary

“Not putting on a display, they shine forth. Not justifying themselves, they are distinguished. Not boasting, they receive recognition. Not bragging, they never falter. They do not quarrel, so no one quarrels with them.” – Lao Tse (Chapter 22, Lao Te Ching)
“Perfect your beingness by going slowly through the routine of your life until you have it mastered. Do the ordinary things that make up your life. Learn to do those things to the point of mastery. You’ll find great satisfaction in them. Conduct your life from a place of quiet, calm loving. Get it perfected so that the routine of your life does not distract you or disturb you and so you can maintain a state of loving in everything you do. Then you can expand the scope of your activity, moving your loving heart out to others in a natural, ordinary way. Then you are just present with people, loving them. Living your life in an ordinary way can be the most tremendous service to your fellow men.” – John-Roger

Lesson 7 – Non-Action


“The world is ruled by letting things take their course. It cannot be ruled by interfering.” – Lao Tse (Chapter 48, Lao Te Ching)
“There are many things in life you do not have to do. You do not have to seek love. You do not have to defend yourself. You do not have to be noticed. You do not have to go out and seek the madhouse world of success, fame, and fortune. You do not have to be what is called a “spiritual person”. You do not have to anxiously hope for anything. You do not have to be considered nice by others. You do not have to have security. Security lies in the inner awareness that there is no security. When you stop fighting for security and recognize that there is none, then there is no more concern about that.” – John-Roger

Lesson 8 – Action From Being

“A truly good man does nothing, yet leaves nothing undone. A foolish man is always doing, yet much remains to be done.” – Lao Tse (Chapter 38, Lao Te Ching)
“If we can just be, and we can let that being of who we are come forward, and we can let our voice and our mind just present themselves, this being will do away with all the doing that has been our compulsive and obsessive behavior. That being comes forward, and then it does the doing. And there’s no karma because the action is done from the state of being, not from the state of ego, or from right and wrong or from “I’m supposed to know” or anything else like that.” – John-Roger
The place that the action is coming from is the key. When we go out into the world, what kind of energy are we carrying with us? Are we going to be in our compulsiveness and our habit patterns, or are we going to be present in this energy of being?
Walt Whitman describes this attitude, this beingness that we can carry with us
beautifully:
“We walk silent among disputes and assertions, but reject not the disputers nor any thing that is asserted. We hear the bawling and din, we are reached at by divisions, jealousies, recriminations on every side. They close peremptorily upon us to surround us, my comrade, yet we walk unheld, free, the whole earth over.”
