The generals have a saying:
“Rather than make the first move
it is better to wait and see.
Rather than advance an inch
it is better to retreat a yard.”

This is called
going forward without advancing,
pushing back without using weapons.

There is no greater misfortune
than underestimating your enemy.
Underestimating your enemy
means thinking that he is evil.
Thus you destroy your three treasures
and become an enemy yourself.

When two great forces oppose each other,
the victory will go
to the one that knows how to yield.
Tao Te Ching v69

Recovery
I am healthy and whole and continually renewed by the spirit of God within me.
Prayer is primary to my healing, whether I am recovering from an illness, surgery or even a broken heart. I begin each day with quiet moments of prayer. I give thanks for the life within me. I visualize the healthy, happy, energetic life I desire.
Healing takes time, and recovery takes many forms. A positive outcome will result if I give my body and mind the time they need. Patiently, I pray for the wisdom to know and do all I can to facilitate my recovery.
Turning my attention to the needs of others often helps my own recovery. Volunteering, even in a seemingly small way, renews me. Praying for others helps us all. Each prayer and every healthful activity supports my ongoing recovery.
Whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. Mark 11:24
Daily Word


I gladly make the “sacrifice” of fear.
Here is the only “sacrifice” You ask of Your beloved Son; You ask him to give up all suffering, all sense of loss and sadness, all anxiety and doubt, and freely let Your Love come streaming in to his awareness, healing him of pain, and giving him Your Own eternal joy. Such is the “sacrifice” You ask of me, and one I gladly make; the only “cost” of restoration of Your memory to me, for the salvation of the world.
And as we pay the debt we owe to truth, (a debt that merely is the letting go of self-deceptions and of images we worshiped falsely) truth returns to us in wholeness and in joy. We are deceived no longer. Love has now returned to our awareness. And we are at peace again, for fear has gone and only love remains.
A Course In Miracles 323


. . . Is A Tower Of Strength And Light
The Only Reality
Now be happy, be filled with joy and look forward into the Light. Live and move in that golden eternal Light, and know that nothing can hurt you. The only reality is the Light, is God, is Love.

    I didn’t “give up” anything for Lent this year, but for the rest of Eastertide I’ll give up suffering, loss, sadness, anxiety and doubt in order to make room for the resurrection power of love. Please hold me accountable!
