Hello, wellness friends.
We at MBHA are discovering that nature often teaches us profound wisdom. Today the focus is on persistence and perseverance. Buddha says, “In the confrontation between the stream and the rock, the stream always wins; not through strength, but through persistence.” This is a gentle reminder of the miracles that occur when we use fearless, focused intention with perseverance and persistence.
Faith, persistence, and gratitude make miracles happen.
What is the secret to those who are successful in making their life dreams a reality? It is persistence, tenacity, drive, motivation, and hard work. Einstein is quoted as saying, “Genius is 1% talent and 99% percent hard work.” The same or similar quotes can be found about success, happiness, and other cherished goals and desired achievements. When we combine persistence with faith, and a loving and grateful heart, this is when we see results.
It’s not enough just to work hard. A hard worker who is a bitter, resentful angry one, will surely fail and this victim consciousness can affect others. This is because he/she is manifesting negativity and wallowing in his/her own swill. To make miracles happen and achieve our dreams, we must combine hard work with a grateful heart. We keep the positive vision, yet take action.
“Vision without execution is hallucination.”
― Thomas A. Edison
There is no better example of this basic principle of manifestation than in nature. Nature shows us over and over again of the law of manifestation. We see this in the sun, the wind, the rain, the plants, and the animals. It’s the law of cause and effect. What we give out to the universe, is what we receive back in turn.
So today we here at MBHA remember the words of Buddha and the persistence of the rolling river, and we are grateful to you and to our universe for the many lessons and blessings of the earth.
With love and joy in life,
Your MBHA health and wellness friends
