Governing a large country
is like frying a small fish.
You spoil it with too much poking.
Center your country in the Tao
and evil will have no power.
Not that it isn’t there,
but you’ll be able to step out of its way.
Give evil nothing to oppose
and it will disappear by itself.
Tao Te Ching v60
I AM ON FIRE WITH A PASSION TO SERVE!
When I’m attuned to Spirit, the desire to serve others is awakened in me. I am eager to express God through my thoughts, words, and deeds. As I wake up to Spirit’s voice within me, I feel my heart expand in gratitude. I realize I am a vehicle through which God is revealed in the world.
I ask Spirit how I can be of service. My heart is open and I am willing. I listen with a grateful heart and mind and act on the guidance I receive. As I share my gifts with passion, I awaken to all I am and all I have to give. The energy of Spirit within me is ignited. I am on fire with a passion to serve!
They came, everyone whose heart was stirred, and everyone whose spirit was willing, and brought the Lord’s offering to be used for the tent of meeting, and for all its service. Exodus 35:21
Father, I did not make myself, although in my insanity I thought I did. Yet, as Your Thought, I have not left my Source, remaining part of Who created me. Your Son, my Father, calls on You today. Let me remember You created me. Let me remember my Identity. And let my sinlessness arise again before Christ’s vision, through which I would look upon my brothers and myself today.
Now is our Source remembered, and Therein we find our true Identity at last. Holy indeed are we, because our Source can know no sin. And we who are His Sons are like each other, and alike to Him.

Your Christ Self
Every day on awakening and many times during the day, particularly when you are being overwhelmed and harassed by the affairs of the physical life, pause and remember that it is the little self, the human personality which is being tried, and then understand that above you in the invisible realms is that greater self, the Christ-self. Look into that form of glorious color, that radiant life, and you will feel infinite power flowing into your personality. You will be conscious, above your personality, of a self which is limitless, which is living in God.
