The most difficult lesson of the third Chakra is to realize that we are all co-creators of our lives. We are not victims of circumstance. Every choice we make has not insignificant consequences and we must acknowledge the roles we play.
Work on Manipura teaches us that true power comes from within. It is not oppressive nor submissive.
Tao Te Ching
True words aren't eloquent
Eloquent words aren't true
Wise men don't need to prove their point
Men who prove their point aren't wise
The master has no possessions
The more he does for others the happier he is
The more he gives to others the wealthier he is
The Tao nourishes not by forcing
not by dominating, the master leads
