The Tao never does anything,
yet through it all things are done.
If powerful men and women
could center themselves in it,
the whole world would be transformed
by itself, in its natural rhythms.
People would be content
with their simple, everyday lives,
in harmony, and free of desire.
When there is no desire,
all things are at peace.
Tao Te Ching v37
I HAVE ALL THE TIME I NEED TO DO WHAT IS MINE TO DO.
Sometimes I get rushed. I may have errands to run, deadlines to meet, and an overflowing to-do list. I hurry, believing I don’t have time to get everything done. If something or someone gets in my way, I can easily lose my patience.
Rather than letting life overwhelm me, I stop, take a breath, and relax. I remember that all things are working together in divine order. I can just as easily choose to be calm and trusting as to be anxious, so I choose calm. A sense of relief washes over me as I release the anxiety that caused me to be impatient.
As I let go of any worry, hurry, and concern, I meet life’s circumstances calm and clear. I have all the time I need to do what needs to be done by me.
Bear fruit with patient endurance. Luke 8:15
Today I will accept the truth about myself. I will arise in glory, and allow the light in me to shine upon the world throughout the day. I bring the world the tidings of salvation which I hear as God my Father speaks to me. And I behold the world that Christ would have me see, aware it ends the bitter dream of death; aware it is my Father’s Call to me.
Christ is my eyes today, and He the ears that listen to the Voice for God today. Father, I come to You through Him Who is Your Son, and my true Self as well. Amen.

Have you ever thought what forgiveness means?
You, your own self, your own personality, needs your forgiveness. Your spirit is divine, but until you have overcome, you personality remains human and needs the forgiveness of your spirit. As you forgive, as your spirit forgives your personality, so also you will learn to forgive your brother man for all his seeming errors. If you will train yourself to think in terms of love and forgiveness every moment in your life, a most beautiful healing will take place in you.
