Week #5 Balance to Flow Programming

Spiritual Study

One of the most enlightening disciplines is the I Ching. It can help you frame important events that are happening or may happen in the future. The Oracle helps the reader recognize his ego and take it out of the equation. If contemplated first thing in the morning, it can give a calming effect that may be helpful when mindfully reviewed during a stressful part of the day . It can be gazed upon daily, weekly or when needed . Today's I Ching passage was written by Stephen Mitchell:

"Fame or integrity: which is more important?
Money or happiness: which is more valuable?
Success or failure: which is more destructive?

If you look to others for fullfillment,
you will never truly be fulfilled.
If your happiness depends on money,
you will never be happy with yourself.

Be content with what you have;
rejoice the way things are.
When you realize nothing is lacking,
the whole world belongs to you!"
