Wherever the ways of man are gentle, there is commerce, and wherever there is commerce, the ways of men are gentle.

Let life freely flow

Any task can become effortless when you let go of all your resistance to it. Creativity and effectiveness come easily and naturally when there is nothing blocking them.

Do you resent the things you will be doing today? Then not only will you be miserable all day, you will end up with very little to show for your efforts.

Choose instead to eagerly and enthusiastically embrace each task, each activity, and each situation. Fully accept whatever you are doing, and you will give it great value.

Great accomplishments do not arise out of miserable struggle. Great accomplishments come from being able to see the goodness in everything, and then focusing that goodness in a specific direction.

It’s impossible to stay focused on what can be when you’re obsessed with complaining or worrying about what already is. Yet by accepting what is now, you are free to create what you know can be.

Make your efforts effortless by letting them happen and letting them be. Let life freely flow, and you will go anywhere you desire.
