Today we realize that the confusion or ineffectiveness that has gone on for too long must be stopped and it’s time to take the bull by the horns as they say. Create a strategy and stick to it with disciplined focus. The cosmic communiqué comes from Kua 7 of the I-CHING which is called “discipline” or “the army” or “collective forces”.
If you can work together with others to accomplish something today—do so. But even working on your own is effective if determined effort and discipline is applied to clear-cut and worthy goals. Apply your innate right to call upon the collective forces that surround you and direct those energies!
One hopes that this is what is occurring in Washington, DC in the United States today—the time for nonsense has ended and it’s time to end the confusion and distortion and become effective.
In your own life, maybe it is time to start that diet or exercise program or achieve that goal that you have been putting off. Whatever it is, exert your own inner authority and be determined not to allow doubt or excuse or any other weakening thought or attitude.
In certain areas or situations or circumstances of our life we must not fail—failure is not an option! What is that for you today? Gather your inner and outer forces of energy and direct them with authority. If you need to elicit the assistance of others to achieve your goal, provide the reason for them to be dedicated to help you—motivate them!
This Kua 7/Discipline brings to mind the time when I was going to school to receive a degree–in Physical Therapy Program. I developed a “do or die” attitude knowing that at the time my freedom and survival both depended on acquiring the degree and passing the board exams. It was THE most disciplined time in my life (aside from training to run in 10K races, but that’s another story). I’d start to worry… those little doubts tried to creep in on occasion.
Whenever that started to happen, I’d straighten my back, raise my chin and with a stiff upper lip would say to myself, “STOP!”, before the whole thought could fully form. Failure was not an option. That was true for other times in my life too and for all of us there are times when we have to say with determination, “This is how it is going to be, PERIOD—END OF STORY—WILL NOT HEAR ANYTHING TO THE CONTRARY!”
And with that I’d gather up the energy and have at it. That’s what today’s message is about; locating those determined feelings and helping others locate them in themselves and then whipping it up and not taking no for an answer. (Well, that’s my take on it anyway.)
I do believe that when we align with a purpose and feel deep within its worth and we have that type of determination, The Universe aligns with us and the Angels sing from the high realms, “So be it, Hallelujah and Amen”. But, that’s me.
