Those who know don’t talk.
Those who talk don’t know.
Close your mouth,
block off your senses,
blunt your sharpness,
untie your knots,
soften your glare,
settle your dust.
This is the primal identity.
Be like the Tao.
It can’t be approached or withdrawn from,
benefited or harmed,
honored or brought into disgrace.
It gives itself up continually.
That is why it endures.
Tao Te Ching v56
I LIVE IN A FIELD OF UNLIMITED POTENTIAL.
Every seed I plant, whether physical or spiritual, has within it the potential for a healthy yield. When the soil is properly prepared and the seedling carefully nourished, the plant flourishes. So it is with my life. A simple yet profound Native American song expresses this idea:
As my eyes search the prairie
I feel the summer in the spring.
I consider my present situation and release any worries. What may seem like an empty field is actually abundant potential, which will soon be ready for harvest. I see beyond appearances and have faith in the forces of Life. I plant affirmations and intentions, and nurture them with faith and action. As I do, a prosperous crop of good comes to fruition.
You visit the earth and water it, you greatly enrich it. Psalm 65:9
The way to God is through forgiveness here. There is no other way. If sin had not been cherished by the mind, what need would there have been to find the way to where you are? Who would still be uncertain? Who could be unsure of who he is? And who would yet remain asleep, in heavy clouds of doubt about the holiness of him whom God created sinless? Here we can but dream. But we can dream we have forgiven him in whom all sin remains impossible, and it is this we choose to dream today. God is our goal; forgiveness is the means by which our minds return to Him at last.
And so, our Father, would we come to You in Your appointed way. We have no goal except to hear Your Voice, and find the way Your sacred Word has pointed out to us.

Eternity Is Now
Learn that eternity is now, the future is now. There is no past or present or future as separate periods of time – all is within the soul’s embrace now. It is your reaction to the now which is your future. Never look into the future and anticipate this, that or the other, for to do so is to live in fear. Live today with God, and your future can hold nothing but joy.
