As it acts in the world, the Tao
is like the bending of a bow.
The top is bent downward;
the bottom is bent up.
It adjusts excess and deficiency
so that there is perfect balance.
It takes from what is too much
and give to what isn’t enough.
Those who try to control,
who use force to protect their power,
go against the direction of the Tao.
They take from those who don’t have enough
and give to those who have far too much.
The Master can keep giving
because there is no end to her wealth.
She acts without expectation,
succeeds without taking credit,
and doesn’t think that she is better
than anyone else.

I AM GRATEFUL FOR THE GIFT OF LIFE.
Giving thanks is a healing act. As I acknowledge my gratitude for life, I feel renewed in mind and body. Life is a supreme gift of God. In prayer and thanksgiving, I strengthen my connection with God and new life pours in to revitalize every part of me and every part of my life.
As I recognize God in all and through all, my environment is harmonized and blessed. I know that wherever God is, good is.
I give thanks today for my ability to pour the healing life of God out into the world. Every word I write or speak, every touch of my hand, every act of service to man, woman, or child becomes a blessing as I maintain a deep consciousness of the presence of God. God gave me life, and I express it freely.
Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift! 2 Corinthians 9:15
Your Son is free, my Father. Let me not imagine I have bound him with the laws I made to rule the body. He is not subject to any laws I made by which I try to make the body more secure. He is not changed by what is changeable. He is not slave to any laws of time. He is as You created him, because he knows no law except the law of love.
Let us not worship idols, nor believe in any law idolatry would make to hide the freedom of the Son of God. He is not bound except by his beliefs. Yet what he is, is far beyond his faith in slavery or freedom. He is free because he is his Father’s Son. And he cannot be bound unless God’s truth can lie, and God can will that He deceive Himself.

God Can Solve Problems
Sometimes you come up against a problem that seems quiet insoluble by the mind or indeed by any material means. On such occasions surrender in true humility to the Great White Spirit. Give yourself into the hands of the Spirit; know that where man fails the power of God will never fail.
