Counting Blessings

Every year at this time I am reminded of an experience I had some 22 years ago.

As I pushed my then five-month-old son in the stroller, admiring all the beautiful (and expensive) holiday decorations in the store, I began to feel badly that I couldn't purchase any of the exquisite ornaments for my Christmas tree.

Just then, I heard a female voice say, He is beautiful. Cherish him.

I turned and saw a radiant older woman standing close by.

I quickly glanced down at my sweet baby in the stroller.

Lifting my head, she was gone. Nowhere in sight.

I was visited by an angel that day; one who reminded me of how truly blessed I was.

We can all use such reminders from time to time.

Wishing you a blessed day of giving thanks.

With love from my heart,
Master Elaine

Start Where You Are

Feeling grateful. Extremely grateful.

Grateful for my spiritual father and teacher, Master Sha. Grateful for loving family, friends, and soul family. For this day and all it brings. For the opportunity to learn lessons as a result of the mistakes I have made. For the indescribable blessings of every day. For the forgiveness I have received for the many mistakes I have made that have caused pain and suffering to others in all my lifetimes.

To purify the heart is to first acknowledge our impurities. Not one of us is perfect. But we can do the work to improve. We can purify our thoughts. We can purify our speech. We can purify our actions, and act with unconditional love, forgiveness, compassion, and light.

Start where you are, wherever that may be.

And always remember: you are loved beyond measure.

Until next time.

With love from my heart,
Master Elaine

From Emptiness Comes Everything

Sometimes we learn lessons in ways that aren't particularly painful or challenging. Other times we make great strides in our journey because we have had to stretch and dig deep.

Both ways are good. Both bring more light, direction, purpose, and what I call "texture" to the tapestry of life.

Either way, we have to be open to receive the teaching...the lesson...the blessing.

They are one and the same: the lesson and the blessing.

We can only receive the bounty that is being offered in any given moment if we are open to receive. An open vessel. If we think I already know this, or this one cannot teach me anything, we have lost out.

My spiritual teacher, Master Sha shared that his spiritual father, Dr. and Master Zhi Chen Guo taught the secret to qigong as:

Empty your heart. Forget yourself. And serve humanity.

When we forget ourselves, we become an open vessel. A clean canvas. An empty cup. From the state of emptiness and selflessness we can receive so much more and, in doing so, we can serve with greater love, forgiveness, compassion, and light. We are empowered further. From emptiness comes everything. Tao (nothingness) creates One. One creates Two. Two creates Three. Three creates all things.

I have been blessed beyond comprehension in this life to have not only met and receive teachings and blessing from, but to become a Worldwide Representative and Disciple of a most extraordinary spiritual master on Mother Earth. My most profound realizations and leaps in not only consciousness, but of heart and my soul journey have come from attending Tao Retreats with Master Sha, who is a lineage holder of Kwan Yin as well as top Taoist masters in history, including Peng Zu, the teacher of Lao Tzu.

I am excited and honored to be attending Master Sha's upcoming Tao Retreats in Estes Park, Colorado, November 9-21. Opportunities like this are very rare and we don't know how long they will last.

I invite you ... encourage you ... call you to attend. If you have not participated in the past, I promise you will receive so much more than you can begin to imagine. If you have participated in the past, I promise you will receive so much more than you can begin to imagine. The blessings and teachings will be unlike anything we can conceive of with our logical minds.

Be an open vessel. From here, gain mastery of all things. 

You will experience and receive so much light that blockages could be removed at an incredible rate. You will experience purification of your soul, heart, mind, and body. You will receive and truly experience a Love Peace Harmony World Family. What I have received has been beyond my comprehension. You will be blessed beyond comprehension too.

Join us! Your life and your soul journey will be transformed. Attend in person. If you cannot, join by live webcast. You will be extremely, extremely blessed.
