The Tao can’t be perceived.
Smaller than an electron,
it contains uncountable galaxies.
If powerful men and women
could remain centered in the Tao,
all things would be in harmony.
The world would become a paradise.
All people would be at peace,
and the law would be written in their hearts.
When you have names and forms,
know that they are provisional.
When you have institutions,
know where their functions should end.
Knowing when to stop,
you can avoid any danger.
All things end in the Tao
as rivers flow into the sea.
Tao Te Ching v32
I LET GO AND FIND ANSWERS WITHIN.
Confinement can be self-inflicted. Just like the monkey who reaches in a jar to grab a banana: When he makes a fist around the food and refuses to let go, he becomes stuck. Sometimes I find myself cramped and confined, stuck in patterns, beliefs, or behaviors that do not serve me well.
My return to freedom and renewal begins with realizing my limitations are self-imposed. With awareness, I can release my grip and turn to the Divine Presence. “Letting go” allows me to relax and realize I am not alone. “Letting God” leads me to answers, healing, and peace of mind. I am no longer confined to the ways of the past. As I place my faith in God, I open to new opportunities.
Happy are those who make the Lord their trust. Psalm 40:4
I was mistaken when I thought I lived apart from God, a separate entity that moved in isolation, unattached, and housed within a body. Now I know my life is God’s, I have no other home, and I do not exist apart from Him. He has no Thoughts that are not part of me, and I have none but those which are of Him.
Our Father, let us see the face of Christ instead of our mistakes. For we who are Your holy Son are sinless. We would look upon our sinlessness, for guilt proclaims that we are not Your Son. And we would not forget You longer. We are lonely here, and long for Heaven, where we are at home. Today we would return. Our Name is Yours, and we acknowledge that we are Your Son.

Be Thankful For Your Karma
Do not criticize your brothers, for this brings about disintegration in your own being, in your own life. Instead, look in love with thankfulness on those with whom your karma has brought you in association.
