Can you coax your mind from its wandering
and keep to the original oneness?
Can you let your body become
supple as a newborn child’s?
Can you cleanse your inner vision
until you see nothing but the light?
Can you love people and lead them
without imposing your will?
Can you deal with the most vital matters
by letting events take their course?
Can you step back from you own mind
and thus understand all things?
Giving birth and nourishing,
having without possessing,
acting with no expectations,
leading and not trying to control:
this is the supreme virtue.
Tao Te Ching v10
All is well.
Everyone needs to feel safe, to have an inner assurance as well as an outer assurance of sustenance and security. Today I contemplate the promise of divine protection. When Jesus wanted to reassure his followers, he reminded them that God is present in all creation, even caring about the tiniest bird. This idea gives me comfort too. I am confident that the power and presence of God is protecting me in all ways.
Any time I am concerned for others, I relax in the awareness that God is guiding my loved ones to peace and safety. I reinforce my sense of security through prayer, which deepens my conviction that all is well.
Look at the birds of the air; they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? Matthew 6:26
Father, let me remember You are here, and I am not alone. Surrounding me is everlasting Love. I have no cause for anything except the perfect peace and joy I share with You. What need have I for anger or for fear? Surrounding me is perfect safety. Can I be afraid, when Your eternal promise goes with me? Surrounding me is perfect sinlessness. What can I fear, when You created me in holiness as perfect as Your Own?
God’s grace suffices us in everything that He would have us do. And only that we choose to be our will as well as His.
