A good traveler has no fixed plans
and is not intent upon arriving.
A good artist lets his intuition
lead him wherever it wants.
A good scientist has freed himself of concepts
and keeps his mind open to what is.
Thus the Master is available to all people
and doesn’t reject anyone.
He is ready to use all situations
and doesn’t waste anything.
This is called embodying the light.
What is a good man but a bad man’s teacher?
What is a bad man but a good man’s job?
If you don’t understand this, you will get lost,
however intelligent you are.
It is the great secret.
Tao Te Ching v27
MY WORK BLESSES ME.
I use my present employment as a vehicle to share my gifts and enrich my life. Whether my work is at home or outside the home, volunteer or paid, I strive for a job well done.
If I am seeking employment, I begin by thanking God for the gifts I bring to the world. I seek to serve with a generous heart and receive bountifully.
If I already have a job, I express gratitude for it every day. I bless my coworkers and my income. I stay present to what is mine to do and release the results to God. When supervising others, I am considerate and encouraging.
Whatever my calling may be, my work is a blessing to me. I appreciate and celebrate it.
Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us, and prosper for us the work of our hands. Psalm 90:17
My Father knows my holiness. Shall I deny His knowledge, and believe in what His knowledge makes impossible? Shall I accept as true what He proclaims as false? Or shall I take His Word for what I am, since He is my Creator, and the One Who knows the true condition of His Son?
Father, I was mistaken in myself, because I failed to realize the Source from which I came. I have not left that Source to enter in a body and to die. My holiness remains a part of me, as I am part of You. And my mistakes about myself are dreams. I let them go today. And I stand ready to receive Your Word alone for what I really am.

Look Below The Surface
Do not judge by what you see on the surface, but develop an inner vision and insight into the cause and effect. Then you will know that you can judge no man.
