Failure is an opportunity.
If you blame someone else,
there is no end to the blame.
Therefore the Master
fulfills her own obligations
and corrects her own mistakes.
She does what she needs to do
and demands nothing of others.
Tao Te Ching v79
I AM AN INSTRUMENT OF HARMONY.
I enjoy the pleasing blend of sounds when musical notes are sung or played in harmony. The music resonates with my soul, stirs my emotions, and offers a welcoming interlude in my day.
Similarly, harmony within relationships enriches my life. I seek affinity with family, friends, and associates. We may each see life differently, but as we hear each other’s ideas and suggestions, and respectfully discuss any agreements or disagreements, we compose a harmonious song.
Musical notes combine to produce a masterpiece. In the same way, the varying qualities and gifts of individuals combine to make a greater whole. Harmonious relationships are a blessing to me.
Clothe yourselves with love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. Colossians 3:14
The end of dreams is promised me, because God’s Son is not abandoned by His Love. Only in dreams is there a time when he appears to be in prison, and awaits a future freedom, if it be at all. Yet in reality his dreams are gone, with truth established in their place. And now is freedom his already. Should I wait in chains which have been severed for release, when God is offering me freedom now?
I will accept Your promises today, and give my faith to them. My Father loves the Son Whom He created as His Own. Would You withhold the gifts You gave to me?

Throw Off Your Chains
The Great White Spirit, the Golden One, the Source of all life, will not fail to raise you up if you will allow yourselves to be raised. You keep yourself in bondage, in chains! Throw off the chains of this earthly darkness and see yourself as you truly are, a son-daughter of the blazing, golden Light of the Sun.
