The Master doesn’t try to be powerful;
thus he is truly powerful.
The ordinary man keeps reaching for power;
thus he never has enough.
The Master does nothing,
yet he leaves nothing undone.
The ordinary man is always doing things,
yet many more are left to be done.
The kind man does something,
yet something remains undone.
The just man does something,
and leaves many things to be done.
The moral man does something,
and when no one responds
he rolls up his sleeves and uses force.
When the Tao is lost, there is goodness.
When goodness is lost, there is morality.
When morality is lost, there is ritual.
Ritual is the husk of true faith,
the beginning of chaos.
Therefore the Master concerns himself
with the depths and not the surface,
with the fruit and not the flower.
He has no will of his own.
He dwells in reality,
and lets all illusions go.
Tao Te Ching v38
REALIZING GOD WITHIN ME, I AM SUCCESSFUL.
God in me is the wellspring of all power and zeal. God in me is the cradle of pure love and compassion. God in me is the source of true wisdom and understanding. In the midst of life’s opportunities and challenges, God in me is the one true foundation for glory and success.
As I consider the desires of my heart, my goals and my dreams, I invite and allow the power and presence of God to move me—heart, mind, and soul—in the direction of my highest good. I radiate love, peace, and joy as I follow my heart. Attuned to the Divine within, I face challenges and embrace opportunities with faith and optimism. I entrust the end results to the God in me.
When Christ who is your life is revealed, then you also will be revealed with him in glory. Colossians 3:4
Father, Your trust in me has been so great, I must be worthy. You created me, and know me as I am. And yet You placed Your Son’s salvation in my hands, and let it rest on my decision. I must be beloved of You indeed. And I must be steadfast in holiness as well, that You would give Your Son to me in certainty that he is safe Who still is part of You, and yet is mine, because He is my Self.
And so, again today, we pause to think how much our Father loves us. And how dear His Son, created by His Love, remains to Him Whose Love is made complete in him.

In The Presence Of The Master
In the presence of the Master anger and resentment dissolve; you are filled with peace, overcome with adoration and love. Your consciousness is instantly raised above the pulls and antagonisms of the earthly plane.
