Today: “The moment you become aware of who you are” – Yogi Bhajan

SSSYWa“The moment you become aware of who you are, everyone on this planet will become aware of who you are. Your only setback is when you are not aware of who you are. You are not only one thing, but you are everything all the time, under all circumstances.” Yogi Bhajan

Today: In conflict, stay strong inside, flexible outside – I Ching

In conflict, stay strong inside, flexible outside.  To mitigate conflict, engage and negotiate mutually acceptable terms for resolution.

Read the text from Richard Wilhelm's translation of the I Ching

CONFLICT DEVELOPS when one feels himself to be in the right and runs into opposition. If one is not convinced of being in the right, opposition leads to craftiness or high-handed encroachment but not to open conflict.
If a man is entangled in a conflict, his only salvation lies in being so clear- headed and inwardly strong that he is always ready to come to terms by meeting the opponent halfway. To carry on the conflict to the bitter end has evil effects even when one is the right, because the enmity is then perpetuated. It is important to see the great man, that is, an impartial man whose authority is great enough to terminate the conflict amicably or assure a just decision. In times of strife, crossing the great water is to be avoided, that is, dangerous enterprises are not to be begun, because in order to be successful they require concerted unity of focus. Conflict within weakens the power to conquer danger without.
