We join spokes together in a wheel,
but it is the center hole
that makes the wagon move.
We shape clay into a pot,
but it is the emptiness inside
that holds whatever we want.
We hammer wood for a house,
but it is the inner space
that makes it livable.
We work with being,
but non-being is what we use.
Tao Te Ching v11
TODAY, AND EVERY DAY, I CELEBRATE MY FREEDOM!
Who is in charge of my freedom? I am! I have been given the gift of free will. I alone choose how I will live. I alone choose my attitude. I am free to choose the thoughts I think and to speak the words I wish to speak. I can choose to rest in the Silence, where I meet with Spirit and receive guidance. If ever I feel restricted or constrained, I affirm: The Spirit of the Lord is in me, and I am free!
If I am unhappy or feeling unfulfilled, I am free to make a new choice. I choose to let go of limiting thoughts. Instead, I imagine my highest good and my limitless possibilities. I choose how I spend my time and set priorities accordingly. I live the best life I can. Today, and every day, I celebrate my freedom!
Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. 2 Corinthians 3:17
I have a function God would have me fill.
I seek the function that would set me free from all the vain
illusions of the world. Only the function God has given me
can offer freedom. Only this I seek, and only this will I
accept as mine.
I am not a body. I am free.
For I am still as God created me.

The Healing Power Of Love
The emotion of real love is Light, and if we think of the suffering in the world with compassion, as we imagine Christ thought of it, we can send forth a great Light which will find a resting place in the hear of the weary and the sad and the sick, and will create in time a new life, a new body.
