The Tao of Abundance highlights eight ancient principles for living an abundant life. Here’s one of my favorites:
“Follow your nature. Your nature is your strength. Many deny their talents, gifts and abilities and they complain they can’t be happy or successful. It is simply a matter of doing what you are naturally good at. If by nature you are a strong person, then you can carry a heavy burden without feeling the weight. If one is naturally a skillful person, you can manage all sorts of affairs without feeling busy. Many people struggle unnecessarily by spending their lives doing work to which they are not naturally suited.”
The drive to improve, to get better, is one of the most powerful natural forces in the universe. But many of us have forgotten the valuable lessons that nature can teach us about change — about the organic process of birth, growth, and decline.
While we may not be able to comprehend how nature works, we must observe nature and learn from it. We are all part of nature and subject to the same laws that affect the world.
