The Tao is the center of the universe,
the good man’s treasure,
the bad man’s refuge.
Honors can be bought with fine words,
respect can be won with good deeds;
but the Tao is beyond all value,
and no one can achieve it.
Thus, when a new leader is chosen,
don’t offer to help him
with your wealth or your expertise.
to teach him about the Tao.
Why did the ancient Masters esteem the Tao?
Because, being one with the Tao,
when you seek, you find;
and when you make a mistake, you are forgiven.
That is why everybody loves it.
Tao Te Ching v62
THERE IS ONLY ONE POWER IN MY LIFE AND IN THE UNIVERSE, GOD THE GOOD.
I begin my day by affirming, “There is only one power in my life and in the universe, God the good.” This affirmation helps me keep my focus on God and see God active in my life.
There may be times when people or conditions seem to have a certain power over me. But I remind myself that things only have the power I give them. Releasing any belief in the power of anyone or anything to take away my good, I return to my morning affirmation. There is only ONE power in my life and in those around me—and that power is God.
Centered in divine power, I am at peace. If there is an action I am to take to help restore my health, prosperity, or harmony, I am receptive to the guidance and wisdom of the One Power, God the good.
No one can serve two masters. Matthew 6:24
Father, You have one Son. And it is he that I would look upon today. He is Your one creation. Why should I perceive a thousand forms in what remains as one? Why should I give this one a thousand names, when only one suffices? For Your Son must bear Your Name, for You created him. Let me not see him as a stranger to his Father, nor as stranger to myself. For he is part of me and I of him, and we are part of You Who are our Source, eternally united in Your Love; eternally the holy Son of God.
We who are one would recognize this day the truth about ourselves. We would come home, and rest in unity. For there is peace, and nowhere else can peace be sought and found.

One Thing At A Time
When your tasks seem a little heavy and overwhelming remember just to do one thing at a time quietly, and leave the rest because the rest is not your job. What you cannot get through you must hand back to God, and He will work it out for you.
