The Tao gives birth to One.
One gives birth to Two.
Two gives birth to Three.
Three gives birth to all things.
All things have their backs to the female
and stand facing the male.
When male and female combine,
all things achieve harmony.
Ordinary men hate solitude.
But the Master makes use of it,
embracing his aloneness, realizing
he is one with the whole universe.
Tao Te Ching v42
I release my concerns and trust in God.
At times I may find myself clutching a worried thought as tightly as I might grip a hammer. My whole body may tense as my mind strikes away at an issue, searching for the answer to a problem or predicament.
There is an easier way. I relax my grip and calm my thoughts. I breathe deeply and release my concerns. I do not need to try to work things out by myself, separate from God. Instead, I open to the flow of God’s love and guidance.
Accessing infinite wisdom, perfect life and strength within, I manage whatever needs arise in my life. Even when I think there is no way, God reveals a way. Relaxed and calm, I am attuned to divine guidance. I trust in God and move forward with confidence.
In God I trust; I am not afraid. Psalm 56:11
This is a thought which can be used to say that death and sorrow are the certain lot of all who come here, for their joys are gone before they are possessed, or even grasped. Yet this is also the idea that lets no false perception keep us in its hold, nor represent more than a passing cloud upon a sky eternally serene. And it is this serenity we seek, unclouded, obvious and sure, today.
We seek Your holy world today. For we, Your loving Sons, have lost our way a while. But we have listened to Your Voice, and learned exactly what to do to be restored to Heaven and our true Identity. And we give thanks today the world endures but for an instant. We would go beyond that tiny instant to eternity.

The Way To Pray
The way to pray is to put yourself in complete attunement with the spirit of love. Be in it, live in it. Think not of yourself and of your earthly need, but of God. Of yourself you are nothing; but when you dwell in the center of the Star, or that heavenly light, you become great because you are then consciously with God and God is with you; all thing work together for good when you are with good or with God.
