The Power of Grace

My dear friends,
Recently, I came across an article from an online course that I took many years ago from Dan Millman and his book …
             (I Highly recommend this book to you.)
Although the article is too lengthy for my newsletter to you today, here are some of the excerpts from the course:

Consider the following questions, and answer “Yes,” “No,” or “Sometimes.”

* When fortune smiles on you, do you think, “This can’t last?”
* Do you find it easier or more ‘natural’ to give than to receive?
* Does your life feel like a series of problems?
* Does money seem scarce or hard to come by?
* Do you find your work or relationships unfulfilling?
* Do you work long ours and lack leisure time?
* Do you resent or envy people who take frequent holidays?
* Do you feel driven to work more, do more, be more than others?
* Do you overeat “comfort” food, smoke, drink alcohol daily, or use other drugs?
* Do you feel uncomfortable when you receive praise, applause, lots of attention, gifts or pleasure?
* Have you turned down or passed up opportunities in education, work, or relationships and later regretted it?
* Do you seem to get sick or injured more than other people?
* If someone asks the cost of your services, do you price yourself lower than others in your field to be “fair”?

If you answered “Yes” to a number of questions, did these circumstances or situations just happen to you solely through bad luck? Or is it possible that the choices you made, and actions you took, led to where you are? By acknowledging your role and responsibility in your current life, you find the power to make different choices.


“No one else can give you an improved sense of self worth. Self-worth comes from doing what is worthy.”

...Dan Millman


Maybe it’s time to take another look.

We end self-sabotage only by taking responsibility for the choices and actions that created it. Only when we stop blaming our boss, the government, our parents, spouse or partner, children, circumstances, fate or God can we change our lives and say with conviction, “I chose where I am and who I’m with, and I can make other choices.”



The Power of Grace

Even when you don’t feel very kind, or brave, or deserving, the roof over your head continues to shelter you from storms, the sun shines upon you, your chairs keep supporting you, and so does your life. Life itself is an unearned gift. This is the hidden meaning of grace.

If you have debts to pay, then pay, then pay them forward in the currency of kindness to others — not by punishing yourself. Not ever again. It is not necessary. It never has been.


“Life is simple…it is all about CHOICES and CONSEQUENCES”
