When they lose their sense of awe,
people turn to religion.
When they no longer trust themselves,
they begin to depend upon authority.
Therefore the Master steps back
so that people won’t be confused.
He teaches without a teaching,
so that people will have nothing to learn.
Tao Te Ching v72
I AM PREPARED AND READY TO LEARN.
In the excitement of preparing for a new adventure or stage in my life, I may have tasks to complete—choosing clothes, obtaining supplies, or learning a new schedule. As part of my preparations, I pray—I turn within and prepare myself mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.
By preparing first in consciousness, I connect with the Source of safety, guidance, and joy. I meditate with the intention of listening to Spirit. I simply ask, “What is mine to do?” The answer may come now or later, in a flash or over time. I give thanks for the guidance I receive. I am grateful for every opportunity to learn, grow, and expand my awareness. Whatever joyful surprise or challenge may come, I am prepared!
Make me to know your ways, O Lord; teach me your paths. Psalm 25:4
Father, the truth belongs to me. My home is set in Heaven by Your Will and mine. Can dreams content me? Can illusions bring me happiness? What but Your memory can satisfy Your Son? I will accept no less than You have given me. I am surrounded by Your Love, forever still, forever gentle and forever safe. God’s Son must be as You created him.
Today we pass illusions by. And if we hear temptation call to us to stay and linger in a dream, we turn aside and ask ourselves if we, the Sons of God, could be content with dreams, when Heaven can be chosen just as easily as hell, and love will happily replace all fear.

Your personal contribution towards the great plan for the evolution of man is to dwell continually upon the love of God; to look always into the light and so to train yourself to recognize God’s goodness working through everyone else.
